I disagree. The main page has to be for consumers otherwise many people will disregard the project as a whole simply from the main page. 

The would be more harmful then helpful to the mapping community due to the fact that many potential users, who woul d have gotten interested and started mapping would be lost. And that means potential usability features will be scattered over many website for end users to scavenge and find, which I doubt anyone will do unless someone experienced tells them.

Not to mention a separate website could be made to "support mappers rather than end users".
