Let's put it a bit stronger. I would never support such a proposal. I 
support positive steering ("we encourage you to upload photo's of 
monuments that not yet have a (good) picture"), not negative steering 
("WLM2011 we limit the eligible monuments to those without an image").

That borders original research.
