There's certainly much easier ways to do this, namely

contourplot(z~x*y, DF, region = TRUE)

or

levelplot(z~x*y, DF, contour = TRUE)

the only restriction being that you would need to use the same 'at'
vector. If you want them to differ, you need to write a small panel
function of your own that makes use of panel.levelplot().
