the mapping module isn't in last stage, you're right. There are some 
more improvements to come, so it helps me a lot if i get some feedback 
like yours.
Currently i'm working on the presets for elements, and my goal is that 
you can override them with TS, or simply add some own.
When i get finished this i'll take your (and hopefully others) comments 
into account to raise usability, thx.
