      Why not? Obviously someone went through all the trouble to place the
      markers. I'm sure the state has some policy for deciding if one is merited
      or not, and I wouldn't be suprised if it is more strict than the current
      gc.com virtual policy.

      Are they only banned because they are "too easy"? They're certainly a lot
      more interesting than bench marks.
