the most important points have already been said, just one:

I am sure they will. And we will supply this help by _adding_ tags
specially aimed at the renderers, for example: "Hint: Although this
piece of road is not technically and legally a motorway, please do
draw it in motorway colour because otherwise the map looks strange".
We will _not_ start tagging things as motorways just so that the map
doesn't look strange, because we want other applications to work with
our data, and we should _not_ remove correct and useful information
from the data base just because a particular version of a particular
renderer has trouble with it.
