Like most other issues, some say yes and some say no, there is no
consensus on this or many other similar issues nor would I expect
there ever to be, that doesn't mean those that would like to see a
problem solved should be actively discouraged just because some have a
subjective preference on a topic. If there is a technical issue that
is entirely a different matter and this thread is for the purpose of
discussing the technical points on solving it which you just snipped.

I never made any mention of implementing something untested on the
main OSM servers, and I already do have mapnik etc setup and working
at present, however this thread is for discussing how to do it, not if
or when it should be done on OSM equipement.
