I do not think we should axe this section. I think waze should inform us what has changed (ideally by waze staff updating this section). Presumably copying external sources of information remains problematic. Haven't the biggest issues been with OSM maps rather than Google maps?
For all I know we may still be prohibited from copying say Google's POIs into the Waze map as doing so may still violate Google's contracts with its various information suppliers. So it may still be true that we can't copy the external Google map without causing problems.
