As for me, anything that is green enough is better than nothing.
I hope it will be decided soon. Looking at the map, I want to see
what is tagged already and what isn't.
It would be nice if there were a color or pattern for
"tagged but not yet decided how to render",
to distinguish from "not yet tagged".
Do you know a way to see what's tagged in JOSM,
except using Imagery - OpenStreetMap (Mapnik)?

That was just for a test and is deleted now.
