So you say despite nothing indicating that the DWG plans a future policy 
to in any way regulate what you are doing it makes you feel you are 
doing something bad and therefore the survey is biased?

To me it seems that if your assessment of the survey is exclusively 
based on how you feel about your mapping activities and you cannot 
point to any question or formulation in the survey that suggests to the 
reader to answer in a certain way you are not really talking about the 
survey but about your expectations or fears how a future policy might 
look like unrelated to the survey.

I do not see anything in the survey that communicates a certain desired 
outcome.  I would go even further to say that since the survey is 
relatively general and vague and lacks more specific questions which 
would require assumptions that could be construed as biased it will 
likely only be of relatively little help in actually making concrete 
decisions about a policy.
