is 90% argument, 5% dead-end discussions and 5% progress. The whole is not
a marketable product; it's not fit to be rated as 'beta'. Is this a
significant cause of ex-mappers ? It's a flipping brilliant project but
sadly lacking a great leader.

It seems you are deeply unsatisfied with how OSM works. And your broad
assertions such as that OSM is "not fit" or is "90% argument" are
completely unfounded. Sure, OSM is not perfect but I seriously doubt that
the k=v design or some other point you have raised is the culprit.

Feel free to leave and create a separate project. You can even be the
"great leader" for that new project that you think OSM needs. If your ideas
are indeed better, then your project will succeed and you can then prove
OSM wrong.
