You might know the French made their own rendering of OpenStreetMap data.
They have a baguette for a bakery instead of the bagel icon. They also have
decicated icons for their railway stations, mail offices, etc. It would be
a good thing when e.g. the Japanese community would set up their own
server, with focus on what they find important and with typical icons for
their culture. When it would appear on osm.org as an alternative layer that
would even be greater.
