1) Yes, the implications of the map are being dealt with (thanks to the Barber brothers) next season.
2) The slipstream special effects should be changing slightly to that the pilot is constantly making decisions at lots and lots of branch points (as was originally descibed in the bible before the start of the series).
3) Slipstream is constantly changing. Therefore it is a map only on the broadest sense. It's not a piece of paper that you can look at. Think of it more like an automated guidance program. Given the inputs of where you started, when you started, and where you want to go (from the ship) it tells you which branch to take when you come to them to get you where you want to go, the fastest way possible (and it might even allow you come out of slipstream closer to the planet or other destination that you otherwise would - that's TBD)
