A game with a high learning curve doesn't sell very good with new users 
and kids.You have to adapt the product for the intended market, which in 
this case is kids and users. Some people are just looking for an easy 
game that is fun to play. Looking for ammo boxes and medic cabinets 
might be quite exhausting considering the size of certain maps. Also, 
they might serve as waypoints for people trying to learn the map. See it 
as a improvement for getting the new players to work for the map goals 
instead of running about looking for ammoboxes.
* users = derogatory terminology meaning generally stupid people ;)

Lee Latham:
Knowing a map is experience. Using the experience for something 
practical is skill. ( I checked a dictionary )

Finding the ammoboxes is without having markings for it is skill, 
because then you have the experience for it and also the skill to use 
the experience. On the other hand, finding it with markings is also 
skill since you have the experience that an icon for a medical cabinet 
on the map is what it is. And you have the skill to use that experience.
