I'd read it like: I'ts not in our interest to do it right.

The purpose of the mail map on osm.org is to show what we have in our 
database (as much as possible). We don't want companies to use our tiles 
directly. And we don't want to have an end-user ready map. This map is 
targeted at the mappers who want to see their bakery on the map and it 
fulfills this goal.
