To sum up I'll give a list of all nominations from 2003 onward with the gaps they fill. It is true the report issued at 2003 (or 2004 for natural sites) could not have has an immediate impact, however, as we have seen with Sumatra forests and Cape Floral, some gap fillers were also anticipated in the reports.

2006 - Cornwall/Devon -just as much an "industrial landscape" as e.g Mining sites of Wallonia. It was the pre-industrial which excluded mining.
2009 - Cidade Velha -Slavery??
2011 - Saloum - is inscribed on Cultural criteria not "N" - we earlier assigned Hunting/Fishing
2012 - Grand Bassam -is very much a French creation of the 19th C and therefore "modern" -
