I actually think this is a fair point. Maybe if I could rephrase what
I think Anthony was getting at:

Not: "Everyone STOP mapping POI's!"

Instead: "Would it be more effective to store POI's in an open
directory (i.e. indexed by address), rather than in the OSM database
(i.e. indexed by lat/long)?"

I think it's an interesting question.
