The problem is that experience has taught us that once an area has the 
look of having been mapped by having lots of roads in place it is much 
less likely that somebody local will jump in and start doing a proper 
survey of the area.

That's why we are much less keen on bulk imports and remote mapping from 
aerial images etc than we used to be.
