And they will not start putting up signs of the Plus-Codes outside their house unless the OpenStreetMap community accept this technology. This was a minor experimental import for a small remote town Zeze in the United Republic of Tanzania. Nothing happened. It is not an issue. Zeze is well mapped at OpenStreetMap, but it is not present at the Google Maps.

If the OSM community accepts the OpenLocationCode, then it would become de facto universal addressing system. Only then people may start believing and investing in it.
