Using the default OSM-Carto layer for a project isn't very professional.
The job of the default layer isn't to make a map for everyone to use in
their projects, its main job is to help mappers see what they have mapped,
and to guide mappers in their choice of tags.

If you decide to use this layer for different purposes you are guaranteed
to have problems.
