[Talk-us] Ka'ula Rock Missing from Yahoo Satellite Imagery

Kaʻula Rock is a tiny islet a couple of dozen miles southeast of Niʻihau in
the Hawaiian Islands.  The islet appears in the imported PGS coastline data
and in the recently imported TIGER boundary data.  But even at maximum zoom,
the islet doesn't appear in the Yahoo satellite imagery.  I was hoping to
fine-tune the coastline data from the photos.
Does anyone know why this islet doesn't appear in the Yahoo imagery?  Are
the over-optimizing the data they serve by sending out generic sea tiles for
areas that they think have no land, and accidentally paving over this tiny
islet?
