It is much better to look at this as a positive rather than a negative!
What *IS* needed is a successful way of using third party data sets
rather than continually merging now quite complex data sets into the one
unmanageable whole. I would hope to see the information available as an
overlay to osm in the same way it overlays google. Then perhaps all the
material that is simply missing or incorrect on google can be replaced
with much more accurate local views :) Certainly the paths and access to
the navigable sections of canals and rivers around here are currently
totally blank on the google version.
