    Functional map are always good, to modularize your mappings. There are  no performance implications, by adding more functional maps as far as I know.

      We do want to evaluate when we need a functional map as they do affect performance and consume resources.  Implemented effectively we will minimize the impact.

    I normally try to use FMaps only when I have to.  I like to keep my output card windows fairly sequential so that I don't have to constantly move to an FMap to figure out what is going on.  So that means I may use one or two or even three indexed objects in the main output card rather than calling a FMap. OTOH, sometimes it is a good idea to call an FMap even if there is only a single input if it clarifies the rules and would otherwise clutter up the main map rule window.
