colors for low zoomlevels

I like to suggest the following:
How about rendering different countries with different colours at zoomlevel 1 to 4? A bit like this:

Just a suggestion trying to make those low zoomlevels a bit more interesting....

Re: colors for low zoomlevels

interesting, but I think we should remove all borders from the map.. It's a international street mapping project, we don't care about borders..  ;-)  (hmm)

Re: colors for low zoomlevels

Hi,
But we do care about nice looking maps... We can let the colours fade away through the higher zoomlevels by adjusting the saturation of the colour. Zoomlevel 1: saturation 70; zoomlevel 2: saturation 60; zoomlevel 3: saturation 50; zoomlevel 4: saturation 40 (for example)
