And I'd encourage you (Woll, that is) to have a look at the mapnik
style rules file. Whilst long and moderately complex, I can see you're
interested in the problem enough that it's worth your while seeing how
it works rather than trying to reverse-engineer the end result.
So you can see in the section starting with
That there are four rules for showing city names, and the lowest one
also has a minimum scale. So at a given zoom level, city names stop
showing up. The min scale of 20000 equates to it showing on zoom 14
but not 15.
