And here you are disqualifying yourself from the discussion because you 
essentially reject the possibility that OSM can function as a cross 
cultural, cross ideology project to document the verifiable geography 
of the world.  If you don't think that is possible and think that OSM 
when mapping the world has to take a political side maybe OSM is not 
the right project for you.  Because that is the most fundamental idea 
behind our project.
