Someone else, perhaps Roeland, mentioned that MAPS is a lot more 
deliberate than ORBS is. Also mentioned was the fact that that can 
be viewed either as a good thing or a bad thing depending on your 
point of view. It's true. Some people like the more aggressive stance
ORBS takes. Some people don't like the apparent abitrariness (if that's
a word) of some of the ORBS listings.
