Perhaps they were just focusing on “mainstream mathematics”. At a 
glance, the map seems to be mostly Number Theory, Geometry and 
physics-related math. So, it looks like “as many fields as possible” was 
not their goal.

Actually, they have some interesting articles in set theory, for instance

where they look at forcing axioms vs. Ultimate-L, and a more recent one 

concerning p=t. In fact, in the map links articles as old as 2014 (just 
a random check).

Indeed, "cardinal numbers" could just have a place among "numbers".
