yes, quite often am I wondering whether I should add a particular little
known gem to OSM for this exact reason.
For the foreseeable future I don't think OSM is likely to be a major factor
trashing them, other media are quicker spreading the news and lists of POIs.
With an OSM map, I don't want to be the last one knowing;)
