Wiki voting, approving and all that aims at establishing concensus if
english or latin names should be used inside "animal=*".
>> As you can see the wiki doesn't play a role in this decision.

You can do that or not, I don't really care as I mostly care about

Most features should probably pick osmarender. Not because it is so
great or "my" renderer but because mapnik aims much more at producing
"nice" maps, while osmarender tries to include all features. IF someone
chooses to provide a patch for mapnik that's fine with me and should not
block the feature from getting approval.
