We can do that, however it must be clear that this can only ever be a
suggestion and is not binding for the people working on the
renderers. Firstly, not every renderer may even be capable of
displaying what the proposal asks for (and I doubt that when
proposing something, you really want to add Osmarender XML, and
Mapnik XML, and rules for the osm2ps renderer, and a color set for
gosmore, and...). Secondly, the people working on the renderers might
have a different view ;-)
