Why can't a map be generated from the XML with no players armies on it? Then all images could be switched and updated automatically based on their XML. If the XML is ever updated the image would be updated as well.
I don't expect it to happen, but this is information I have always been wanting to see when playing new maps.
How about modifying the Map Info Pages
as suggested earlier?
All that needs to be done is convert the 88 on Starting Neutral Examples to the real number of assigned armies.
I do see your point, though, and this change boils down to the same thing, - read XML, show image, only plot neutrals.
