I'm pretty sure that some of the Haiti crisis responders are military in 
nature. FWIK, at least, Spain usually sends both civil and military 
search-and-rescue personnel to earthquake sites.

UNOSAT, JRC, ITHACA, SOUTHCOM... at some point, some organisation using OSM 
maps&data may have printed a map for some military rescue team.

Should we prevent some relief teams from using OSM?
