Well - sort-of.  There's a correlation between what gets approved and 
what gets rendered but it this statement would be misleading to anyone 
stumbling upon it out of context.  For example, the wiki page for OSM's 
Mapnik style makes clear that it's trac tickets (signifying what people 
are asking to be rendered) that's the driver.  Also, at least one editor 
maintainer has made it clear that a tag's "approved" status has 
absolutely no bearing on whether it appears as a preset.
