This will be controversial, but it almost seems perm map (and its mining map) should be dropped, carry on with Vanilla and new Seasonal map (with perks) with 1.17/1.18 update. The biggest issue for vanilla would be how to handle updates.
I realize that somewhat contradicts my previous statement. but a slim perk perm map is close to what we have on Vanilla now. Not same, but close.
Like I've said earlier, that would fit part of our player base well, and exclude some entirely.
