Agreed - as has been said many times before, you can't have one map 
style that "looks nice", "shows everything" and "works everywhere".

OSM Carto is one map style that by definition is a compromise. Other map 
styles are available, at least one of which that I can think of (mine) 
addresses the issues that you have raised - but does so by making 
different compromses - it fails elsewhere in the world and for other 
target usage, so it simply isn't suitable as an "everywhere in the 
world" style.

Best Regards,
