I've done my homework and created a wiki proposal page

I left out the spacing=nodes part because it causes confusion. The key is
now explicitly meant to be a parameter of a group of objects such as a
tree_row or orchard, not actual positions  of individual objects. or exact
distance between them.
Though I can thnk of other applications, the main purpose is adaptive
rendering, starting with tree_row. For this to work, the default rendering
style on OSM-carto will have to be adapted.
I have bumped the discussion about rendering tree_row on the appropriate
github forum. There is general support for the idea, several options have
been discussed but whosgonnadoit? Now Marc Zoutendijk, a Dutch OSM-mapper,
is looking into it. I am confident that he can go where no-one has gone

I'm looking forward to hearing your contributions, appreciate any help.
