Historically, the "standard" style was a "for mappers" style - it was
designed to show features that mappers had mapped. That has been
changing (largely without community involvement or review). I tried to
kick off discussion here:
and would have welcomed input from the people changing the "standard"
style from its previous purpose to explain exactly what they thought
that the standard style was _for_. Unfortunately, none was forthcoming.
I would certainly welcome (on the talk list rather than the tagging
list) some information about what the group of people currently editing
the "standard" style are actually trying to achieve with it. It seems
like the end goal is something a bit like what the Mapquestion Open
style already provides (a summary of road information, not much else),
which seems a curious design decision given that Mapquest Open tiles are
already available as a style on the front page.
