This point is correct, & to bring the thread back to on topic, OSM is 
best promoted, not by word of mouth as some have said, but by 
visualization & mouth.

People will tell their friends about OSM when they see a working map not 
when present with a long list of XML data.

This won't happen if none of the map creators are taking the data 
because they think it's crap.
