The most likely location for this to be discussed is probably within the
openstreetmap-carto developer community as they would benefit most from
such approaches. I don't follow their work closely though so couldn't
say if the issues have been discussed in the past.

I'm sure Arne himself would be happy to participate but I hear he's gone
on holiday after completing his thesis ;)

I'm not aware of any plans, but I do know that Arne has quoted similar
work done by others, and there were many English-language works among
that, so perhaps if you skim through his literature list at the end of
the PDF you'll find interesting articles.
