It is pretty cool, but I believe that it just uses pyramid tiling + XML definition file in the background, with some sexy SL/JS transitions. I was marginally involved in developing Nanaimo's Public Art Inventory web app, which uses the JS version of Seadragon to present high-resolution photos of public art. I don't think the image format is documented, but could be wrong. We ended up using DLLs from MS's Deep Zoom Composer to generate the tile sets.
IIRC there have been a couple open source efforts (Deep Zoom Earth?) using this technology for mapping.
