It is weird that everybody is falling for the same trap of completely
forgetting (or is it just mail.ru marketing?) all the apps and programs
that have come and gone that have promised simple contributing ...
starting off with the Mapzen POI collector. Fact is none of them have
really delivered on the promise and essentially all have cut corners in
one way or the other.

If there is nothing mapped in an area having a (pre-cached) imagery
layer is a plus, not a minus.
