It is, but if I am just putting together a quick module, to solve a problem and
it generates the page itself, all I should have to do, is create a handler, like
I did in 1.3.  If I also have to create a map_to_storage hook, then we will
have broken a lot of 1.3 modules when they try to port, and I can't see a good
reason for that.

The map_to_storage hook should be an optimization that I want to use, not
a requirement that I HAVE to use.
