client-side xslt is really slow, I'd rather see the conversion on the 
server - this would have a few benefits, the svg would work in Opera/Adobe 
SVG viewer (in IE)/KSVG/Mobile SVG renderers and would be trivially 
saveable - of course it would cost yet more server load :-(

It looks, very, very good though - I can see some missing roads - also of 
note - how do you mark a barrier that  you can drive through during some 
parts of the day (as is the case of one of the missing roads)
