Really? Are there people who say "I'd rather not map because there is no 
consensus on the roads tagging"? Are those people the 20,000 missing 
mappers in the US?

Personally I'd think a per-state consensus would already be quite good. 
Greece and Norway use different tagging schemes - so why would anyone be 
"held back" if Texas uses something other than Alaska?
