So - just curious here - who's left in the "party" that thinks a mile is a mile is a mile and uses Vingans as surveying equipment but not as artillery?

FWIW, I think I'd let the feat send that javelin *up to* a mile (impossible without magic no matter how good you are), but the chance of hitting what you aim at would be down to other skills (javelin combat, say), with distance modifiers applying. There's a nice table of them for magic on p275. One mile, -20.
