Yeah, you will actually be able to do something like that fairly "easily" (at least, relative to how complex it might be in other engines) -- the engine is scriptable via a javascript client (demoed in another post), so you could pull data from Google Maps or something.

Yeah would make a pretty cool openstreetmap tile generator

Sounds really cool! :)
