I completely agree. This is far from the finished map and it needs a lot 
more work. In addition to hard-to-read labels and layering issues, there 
are many basic features still missing from the map.

Most importantly, the demo uses all pre-rendered tiles. That works for a 
small area like this, but becomes impractical for a nationwide map. The 
biggest challenge may be to get acceptable rendering performance so that 
tiles can be rendered as they are requested. Nevertheless, I'm hopeful 
it can be done without too many compromises.
