I agree totally.  And a good to do it is to tie changing one 
variable to others.  I.e. when you increase forest, grass decreases.  
Think of taxes/luxury/science slide rules.

However, if wetness/steepness/temp system is planned, we should implement 
it in one go, rather than phasing things in and out.

"Relief" does also mean "the elevations or inequalities of a land surface" 
but it's a meaing numer 7-8 and by far not the most common.  I tend to 
take it as "removal or lightening of something oppressive, painful, or 
distressing" and I think we need another word.  Elevation?  Steepness?
