Well, but it is an issue that the map we show off now, is not exactly
feature rich (plain text: is nothing to show off). So I think the discussion
is warranted to either add more bliing bling to the map, or give it a less
dominant status.

I personally prefer the second approach. The map on osm.org is mainly a
working tool. It is not shiny, but it has a purpose and it does itss job
well. So we should present it that way and give the "first row advantage" to
those shiny feature-laden applications that serve well to impress and
convince new people of OSM.
