It is to be hoped that NLHF's new requirement, that the results of
what they fund be released under open licence, will apply, and that no
exemption to that has been granted.
Usefulness will heavily depend on resolution. There are various listed
monuments in churchyards but STL files require a decent resolution to
be useful (Mad Jack Fuller pyramid is perhaps an exception).
