Description

Display the average age of the tiles on the view-tab (or on the wiki somewhere). For example:
99% of the tiles is not older than 2,5 days. 80% of the tiles is not older than 36 hours.

or (second example):
99% of the tiles is not older than 7,5 days. 80% of the tiles is not older than 6,5 days.

This serves the following:
The first example tells us that rendering is just about to be finished (so our edits in will be visible very soon on zoomlevel 17). The second example tels us that rendering is just to be started, so we do not have to check wheter our edis are already on the map. It is beter to come back later.....

I think you misunderstand how the system works - rendering is never "finished" in any global sense. It is a rolling process whereby any part of the map which somebody looks at is automatically queued to be rerendered, assuming that it hasn't been done recently.

You can see more information on how it works at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Slippy_Map#Mapnik_tile_rendering.

I don't think that displaying the kind of statistic you suggest will be possible anyway, even if it were useful, as the database query required to update it would be very resource intensive.
