Actually, i was wondering with the context of the mission statement.
(but thats fine, if thats needed to define that the US is)
OSM's job is to map it all, and list what local people call it.
Might i recommend adding a mandate to:
Maintain & ensure quality with the USA community specific standards,
and render the openstreetmap.com default map to be stylized to
ie. All labels to be english, a custom map key to list the way you
understand the meaning of 'freeway' and 'forest' ...etc.
As well as design and maintain & develope the page layout to the way
that the US chapter likes it to be.
Imo, the OSMF decides the page layout and what default map (and what
other maps) to display on OpenStreetMap.org is/are.
So thats something tangable :-)
