Let it be noted that with that statement the board in my eyes quite 
clearly exceeds its own mandate and that of the OSMF (as described in 
the OSMF mission statement).  You here express you look forward to OSM 
recording alternative views or opinions about the geography that 
conflict with what is observable on the ground.  This is not a neutral 
statement, this is expressing a specific direction in which you desire 
the community to move.
