Yep. We have the perennial problem with OSM that some aspects of 
geometry are expressed in metadata (i.e. tags/relation structures) 
rather than in attributes (as lat/lon) - in particular, layers and 

MapCSS has traditionally taken the attitude that stylesheet authors 
shouldn't have to worry about this and has therefore automagically 
abstracted them away.
