Map Returned To Photopage, But Not Useful

Hovermap on old photopage
The small, hoverable map has been returned to the photopage, and it’s clickable (unlike the simple text in the NPE). However, clicking it does not show a map with that photo pinned on it. Instead, you're taken to a map with other “nearby” images that other people took.|
In the previous photopage, the photo-owner could click the location name link to see an editable map, to change either the location name, or the actual location. Viewers could click to see the map (see image at left).
The N/F/Z’s change makes the page prettier and slightly more functional than the NPE, but it’s still next-to-useless for those of us who geotag our images.
There are also no labels on the map, as there used to be. See comparison images at left and below.
Less Useful Tag Links
The tags no longer link to that user’s images with the same tag. Now, if you click a tag at the bottom of the right column, you’re taken to a general Flickr Search of all images from all users with that tag.|
(This is identical to the NPE behavior, and worse than the previous photopage.)
Tag-link choices on old photopage
Entire Tag Is Not Displayed
The N/F/Z cuts off any tag longer than 20 (or so) characters. I believe this lack-of-feature is new to the N/F/Z . For example, Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro is what used to be displayed, but the N/F/Z shows only Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6....|
EDIT, 2014.07.05: This userscript fixes the issue for anyone using it. Any user without the script will still see truncated tags.

‘Add A Tag’ No Longer Helpful
|Just like the NPE, when you add a tag in the N/F/Z, the page no longer suggests tags from your list, nor does it allow browser auto-fill to help, both features that were useful on the previous photopage.||

Buddy icon menu on old page
See the original size (764 x 406)
Until the NPE, every photopage had the user’s “buddy icon” underneath the image. The buddy icon functioned as a hidden drop-down menu, with which anyone could navigate to that user’s other pages.|
The N/F/Z continues the NPE’s loss of functionality in this respect. There is still no such buddy icon navigation.
(Though I think the new, circular buddy icons are ugly, I’m more concerned that they are now simple image links instead of useful drop-down menus.)
Less Prominent Photo Title
|The N/F/Z has added boldface to the photo title (it wasn't bold in NPE), but the text is still smaller than in the previous photopage and is currently smaller than the user name, which is just above it.||
Old title: white-on-black, bold, larger
