Provide for multiple map sources for the Map Module

Adobe should allow Lightroom to use other map sources for the Map Module. Many other applications do.

Not only could maps that provide better information be used (like say OpenHikingMap for trails, or topographical maps), but this would make Lightroom more robust, in that connection failure with one map source would not render the Map Module useless.

Geosetter would be a good starting place for the Adobe team to look at. Even though I work on a Mac, the limitations of LR's Map module drive me through the hassle and effort to Geosetter in a Windows virtual machine, with the inherent risk of messy up metadata.  Flipping between Google and OpenStreetView is very helpful at times.  Hmmm, I wonder if a transparent proxy could be deployed to change and improve the behaviour of LR?
