Well I made the suggestion for a countryside group but have only had a
couple of people interested. But I agree that more needs to be done on the
countryside. I am in the process of developing countryside-orientated
Mapnik maps (with contours) which will hopefully help; also Richard is
doing some work on Potlatch which will make the prospect of a
countryside-centric online editor become a reality.

They do - at lower resolution. It's often enough to figure out field
boundaries; they're slightly better than Landsat.
Another countryside-based mapping party (following the New Forest last
year) in the spring or summer would be a good thing to have too. Somewhere
high profile like the Lake District would be good.
