Nothing against adding the app per-se but the rationale seems a bit

Perhaps the solution here is to allow external GOA providers and make
such provider a dependency of the maps app?

Going further, I fail to see how foursquare or maps itself brings value
to the default install (just to clarify, I'm not assuming it doesn't, I
just don't see it myself).
