Terrain in Google Maps

I have been wishing for Google to add topo maps to Google Maps. That hasn't happened yet, but we are getting closer with the addition of a terrain layer to Google Maps. Sweet!

Now Google, what about about a real topo maps layer? I would think this shouldn't be a big deal, especially in the U.S. where the data is provided for free by the USGS. If Microsoft can do it (see an example on TerraServer), shouldn't Google be able to do it as well?
