That's the intention, though not well described in the commit message.

The implementation I put in place is to get things working quickly since 
we broke head. I intend to modify the LocationMapModule class to mount 
an empty locationmap if it cannot find the project one (i.e. do what the 
current workaround does). In the meantime we can start building the 
forrest locationmap.

Yes they do - at least in theory, I've not tested it yet. If I 
understand it right pretty much any of the map: elements can be used (or 
easily be made to work).

In other words. I agree with everything you say. I hope others do too ;-)
