I remember seeing this plot, but I can't remember (or imagine) what solution I 
was thinking of. In your example, the number of levels is already 17 in the 
fit returned by lme():

> fm4Oats <- lme( yield ~ nitro, data = Oats1, random = ~ 1 | Block/Variety ) 
> fm4Oats
Linear mixed-effects model fit by REML
  Data: Oats1 
Number of Observations: 68
Number of Groups: 
             Block Variety %in% Block 
                 6                 17 

and the subsequent augPred and plot.augPred calls retain that. In other words, 
the 'dropping' of levels has already happened when xyplot is called, and the 
fact that xyplot would have dropped unused levels doesn't come into play. I 
don't think there's an easy way to get what you want here.
