If there's radiation then I expect there to be some danger area or
something. If there's a crater, we can map the crater.

I'm cleaning Lummerland in the middle of the ocean even though it's
neither disturbing nor confusing other mappers ;)

I see the need to clean this up because it is hard to explain to people,
in other situations, that we're mainly about surveying and everyone
improving on the work of the others when at the same time we have
thousands of un-surveyable and un-verifiable sites in the database.
(Sites that will, unless they're mapped erroneously, *never* *ever*
change, because by definition these nodes refer to something that has
happened in the past which cannot be changed by anything that happens in
the future - unlike a house that can be torn down, or a boundary that
can be changed.)
