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?
