Hat tip to you for noticing that - I was concerned about goals keeping
us from doing the right thing, but now I see that unless backed up by
solid metrics this goal is so soft that reaching it is just a matter of
tasking a working group with finding one scale on which we already are
the most used map.
Maybe I didn't have to worry after all. Maybe the board was much
cleverer than I thought, and purposefully manufactured goals that can be
reached easily ;)
