For this application having a well defined region isn't a big issue. To me
it's more of "if you are interested, here is a  nearby OSM group(s)." I
think as we learn how users react to the feature, we can find ways to
improve it.  To that end, I gave Metro Vancouver as an area to github
issue. It probably should extend out more than just the metro relation but
I felt it was a good start.
