I remember that we in the osm-carto community were mentioning about
generalizations for some time, but it is just loosely scattered here and
there and we've never focused on this. I've heard quite interesting
things about this technique in a Paul Norman's talk from last year (the
exact section is here: https://youtu.be/g2HYYADa8XI?t=1h36s ).

I think it's the best to discuss this topic on the forum, because it's
much broader than any single ticket should contain, and it might be
interesting for rendering other styles too:
