I am aware of these processes.

actually, regulations say that you have to conform to the regulation :)
they don't tell you what charts to use.

also, all changes are available and communicated well in advance, so
that people have time to update their charts.

that's a difficult nut to crack indeed :)

I'm not aiming that high. I just want to have a VFR map that I can
reasonably trust :)
