Since we have user management anyway, we could also just have a user
preference that says "with or without coordinates". Anonymous surfers
would get the map without, logged-in members would see what they prefer.
I think those that desperately want coordinates should simply go ahead
and implement one of these options. As long as you don't clutter the map
for those not interested, I don't see that such a change would be
rejected. OSM is a self-service project ;-)
