Nobody has, at any stage, objected to mapping craters

Craters and shorter mountains are fine: they represent visible features in
today's world.
Missing atols however are arguable, as are the historic events that seem
better suited to a database of georeferenced historic events.
Creating such a database would open up tremendous opportunity to map other
events, like Woodstock (the concert), or
other famous event sites that don't have plaques or memorials.
