I use current location when entering data in FTM and when creating basic reports for clients so they can visit the place their ancestors came from. I also keep an extensive (offline) database of additional place information since FTM and most other genealogy software does not have a datastore/table to maintain place information.

I've suggested many times that "Place" should be expanded to include fields for "indexed alternate names", map coordinates, pictures, history stories, flags, historical maps, etc.
