it's not easy for forests or similar things either, because they might be split (for good reason) into several smaller objects. What you need for good macro maps is generalization, i.e. merging together of similar things, reduction of unwanted detail while keeping the characteristics and significant features and shapes. Nothing we should encourage our mappers to do in the main db (at least as long as we have one scale fits it all data), it must be done parallel or with locally processed data.
