New Locations for Monopoly Board - How should the Tube feature?

Should the London Underground be on the Monopoly board?

I just heard on the radio that the new version of the board game Monopoly will have new locations on it when it comes out in June 2006. The public can vote for the new locations they'd like to see listed:

Choose Locations for New Monopoly Board

"Trendy Primrose Hill and Portobello Road are just two areas which could appear in the 2006 edition. Kings Road is one candidate which may oust Mayfair from the most expensive slot on the board. " says 24dash.com

Monopoly fans can vote for their favourites suggested by property website rightmove.co.uk and ask for a voting form via monopoly@monopoly.co.uk says the Monopoly press release.

But what about the London Underground eh? We've had Kings's Cross, Liverpool Street, Fenchurch Street and Marylebone stations on for years. If we are going to get Kings Road, Coldharbour Lane, Brick Lane and Elephant & Castle, surely we should have Sloane Square, Brixton, Shadwell, and errr Elephant & Castle Tube stations?

Why not take it a bit further and have some new "Chance" cards relating to the Tube? "You've missed your stop because you fell asleep", "You trip over a busker's violin case and twist your ankle", "Your Oystercard has run out and you have no change on you!" Any more suggestions for stations or chance cards most welcome!
