Dragging the map would seem to be a natural thing to have but no they have this (slow) scroll to the edge thing.
Now *this* I can agree with. It's not horrible or game-breaking, but I would have liked to see a better map. Just a few things: you can disable tracking of the other quests so that there is only only quest on the compass. Makes it a little easier. Also, you don't have to scroll to the edge on the map; you can just scroll the map with WASD. Still, I keep intuitively trying to mouse drag it, anyway.

In the other thread about Skyrim maps, someone said that the clouds would go away as you explore the map, but I haven't seen it yet.
