"Download along" should automatically download smaller areas in places with many objects

Trying to download along the way in the attached example, using 500 meters and 20 km² as values, we easily reach the maximum number of objects in a request:

Couldn't download along automatically fallback to a smaller area per request when this kind of problem happens?

If we do this we must still put a limit. Otherwise if someone draws a way that spans across the whole world, the huge number of recursive download tasks will lead to an uncomfortable situation :)
