True - we insiders know that you can basically tag whatever you want  
and that Map Features *is not* prescriptive, and once you know the  
system a bit, you know where it makes sense to deviate from what  
others do and where you'd perhaps better just go along.

I noted little check marks saying "approved feature" or so popping up  
on Map Features - what's with them= Result of a discussion I missed?
