but also:

- most mappers are still busy with mapping more straightforward stuff like
paved roads, house numbers, simple POIs. "Why think of the future, there
are so many more things that we can map without endless discussions" ?
- maybe "why should I bother discussing something, while free tagging is
- language barrier, please don't forget that not everybody is capable to
discuss in English. The Belgian mailing list suggest to discuss in English
(to avoid the French-Dutch-German problem), but we had complaints that this
limits the participation.
