Please do not split up the map features page!

We already have the key pages showing a feature in more detail, my 
feeling is splitting it up further is adding confusion and in the end 
won't help a lot.

What might make more sense is to add the "discussion status" to the 
entries, e.g. something like: "widely used", "rarely used" or "under 
heavy discussion" (just an example, don't mind the exact phrases). This 
could be done with a new text column or the use of specific background 

This doesn't solve the real problem. But at least indicates better where 
there's no real consensus.
