I am supposed to add support for lower and medium zoom levels to the OSM Vector map theme of Marble. Before the project started, the map theme supported high zoom levels and the expectation is that by the end of the project, Vector map theme will fully support lower and medium zoom levels. For further details you can read my introductory blog post[2]
