Beeing able to lock layers to prevent them from changes. When I collected data with osmand (which is imho a great tool) I import the .osc file into josm. I also download the area I want to edit into a different layer. This way I dont loose track of all the changes in the first layer and "move" them one by one in the downloaded layer.
When I work on a greater area I download only the surrounding of the object I want to change. This way it sometimes happens that I accidentally download into the first layer – then I loose track. So it would be very nice to be able to prevent this layer for downloading or have an option to download only in the other layer.
