I dislike it for several reasons. Two of them are

(a) We have no "main OSM map", on purpose. We are not a map drawing 
project. What exactly would we be selling to sponsors - would they not 
come and complain that their company logo is not on the cycle map, or 
not on the Cloudmade tiles, or not on the tiles at home map?

(b) I fear this to be a can of worms where people suddenly think they 
are entitled to request that their logo be moved a little bit so as not 
to touch the road, or complain that the logo of their filling station 
does not render because of the proximity of another logo or label, and 
so on. "But I'm paying for this!!!!"
