Sometimes as I labor over doing these areas correctly I wonder if someday
it will all be made obsolete. I don't know when or if it will happen but I
have to think that some point in the future OSM will employ aerial imagery
as does Google. Then, instead of a white, featureless background in areas
no OSMer has "filled in" we'll see the earth's surface as it really is with
our routable ways overlaid upon it.
