As said that is not quite true - but of course attributing artefacts, 
noise and rendering distortions that are visible to specific data 
processing steps is not easy.

As Joseph has hinted when it comes to accurate rendering for precise 
mapper feedback without unintentional incentives at the lower zoom 
levels there are other options based on pre-rasterizing the data which 
would still allow using the benefits of client side styling.  I have 
demonstrated that in the past.
