Excellent news.  Thanks for this.

Point of discussion: should ref=* be all there is or should name=* also be
rendered in
a similar way that addr:name and addr:housenumber are rendered (with, I
think, the
name rendered in preference to the number where space is tight)?

I'd have to dig out the photo I took of a drawing of plot assignments to
get the exact
details, but my recollection of assignments in my local(ish) allotments
(the only ones
I've mapped) plot 10a is also titled "Collective Orchard" (or some such).
And, as I
mentioned earlier, the guy who proposed the plot tag had mapped something
"name=J Bloggs Memorial Allotment".

I think a case can be made for handling the name as well as the ref, but
perhaps not a
very strong case.  And, TBH, just rendering the borders of the plots would
be a big
improvement, so I'll take what I can get.
