I'll second this. I can't use maps myself, it's not very accessible,
but I'm certainly in favor of it being installed by default. Apologies
if I'm wrong, but fedora has always wanted to showcase all of what
gnome can do, and how can that be done if you don't include *all* of
the gnome applications that come with the desktop?
