Thanks David,

If I understand correctly, your position on this issue is that:

   - Creation of OSM-compliant natural hazard data should be encouraged
   - This data might not be stored in the main OSM repository (planet.xml)
   - This data should be consistent with existing tags and ontologies
   - This data should be rendered with appropriate symbology

In other words, we should aim at a fork-project (openhazardmap.org for
instance) that will:

   - Store specific hazard-related data
   - Store TMS specifications for appropriate rendering
   - Mashup the hazard data on appropriate data from planet.xml

Am I right? Anyone having a different opinion?
