Yes, but this entire tangent began with psnarula's need to obtain a directory that includes mailing addresses, which the current LUWS site does not.
This fork in the thread has gotten far afield from the topic of the LDS Maps beta. But it does make me wonder what the plans are for integrating the member information.
I still don't quite understand where the data in the beta site is coming from. It looks mostly like MLS data, except the household names inconsistently reflect preferred names rather than full names.
There seem to be diverse sets of data in play: The current MLS data, the current LUWS data, the CMIS database at CHQ, the database being used for development of the new LUWS website, and whatever tables are being used for the beta maps site. I have to believe that all this will be better integrated when the new sites go into production, but I don't know what that roadmap is.
