Agreed. We have a chance to do lot's of little point (on the spot) mappings.
Here's a question though: who is responsible for handling variant mapping?
a) I, as a producer of information, am obligated to make it available
to my target audience.
b) I, as a comsumer, am obligated to figure out what it meant.
It obviously depends, but in general, I would place the onus on the producer....
