Maybe they should have tried harder then.
Places not mentioned in the book (except in passing) but got a shout-out on the map:
Some of those have been fleshed out in other books, though.
Also, some fictional maps just throw out semi-random names for potential inspiration and plot hooks for later players and GM. In fact, I was looking over the map of the universe from an old setting book of a certain venerable Role-Playing game about sailing ships through space, and tucked away in a corner of that map is a lone, unremarkable planet called Golarion....
EDIT: Hmmm, I may be wrong on the officialness of that map. I need to look farther into it...
