Come on. Does that mean that we cannot use "www.openstreetmap.org/api" to
update the database?
That "tile.openstreetmap.org" can disappear in 2 weeks time?

While I agree it shouldn't be hardcoded, I don't see right now how to make a
difference between a "not supported/endorsed/can disappear anytime"
openstreetmap.org service and "stable" ones...
