Guys this has to stop, and it's been done multiple times before.
You're tempting someone to copy data from google to OSM. Every
previous time we've asked people to remove these direct comparisons.
Don't get me wrong, it's very pretty, but if someone copies some
copyrighted data based on it it's game over. And, we can't be seen to
be allowing that as a possibility.
