Probably. But redundant is better than ambiguous.

Nah. Just so long as we all understand it that way.

That would be OK, too. Just so long as the definition of the map and its
locations clarify that the locations aren't "associated with" the players
in them in any form that'd make them get deleted. How about:

"The game contains a map, consisting of rooms, one of which is called "the
Lounge". All players have a location on the map which is initially the
Lounge. The map and any information about the location of anything on it
shall be considered part of the state of the game. The map and the
locations it comprises will be considered associated with the game itself,
as opposed to being associated with any individual player(s)."
