I agree, definitely. You can also chop up a graphic
piecemeal then reassemble it client-side, assigning
one URL to each piece.

See the front page graphic at Cleveland's Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame for an example. That single imagemap
you think you see is actually multiple chunks run
one-by-one through Transparency.

Of course, this is a lot of work so maybe client-side
maps are best.
