It seems Google used this map upgrade to signal developers that the Google maps API was upgraded recently to v2. So I followed the instructions about the upgrade to v2 for my loc2map script and now I can see that Surfnet, the Internet provider for higher education in the Netherlands, puts their routers in a wheat field in Rotterdam or under the trees in Amsterdam (zoom in to the deepest level). Ok, the LOC RFC says you can give coordinates 'in the area' and update the 'horizontal resolution' accordingly. It still looks funny.
