Mammoth genome sequenced

Very cool idea - in a sort of "sci-fi" sense. But there is no current way to grow clones without a host mother, and they are considering using a captive elephant. I don't really like this idea because elephants are intelligent and very social, yet somewhat few in numbers themselves. Haven't humans abused elephants enough without making one bear a different species?

Maybe we could wait on an unneccessary scientific experiment until we have the technology for an artificial incubator.
If brought back could they survive in today's world outside of a zoo ? Where would they live , where could they live ?
