Kevin, I share your frustration but suggest that is the wrong approach. 
Image Feature A is correctly rendered but not so Feature B.  We won't 
encourage the rendering mob to render B by tagging everything as A.

Might be worth your while looking at how others are using the data, 
OsmAnd do a great job of rendering some of the detail found in the 
database. And make a pretty attractive looking map at the same time. 
There are lots of other 'consumers' of OSM data.
