I'd rather let josm not download additional data in some distant
spot as long as you have unpushed changes.

Same could be with id - dont let user pan/zoom aways to distant spots
without first pushing their changes.

By this you actually force the use to split their changes spatially.
It will still let you edit big objects as you loaded them in the first
