This is what is used by OpenStreetMap (both Mapnik & Osmarender) for a base layer:
We could look at a deeper integration (like for Shapefiles) so that .osm files are uploaded & tiles rendered (by Mapnik &/or Osmarender) & served via TileCache.
Hence this would be a way of doing offline GIS.
(To be able to query OpenStreetMap features, requires the use of an OSM overlay layer)
