Some suggested rendering has been poorly-conceived after a few minutes of
thought.  And some suggested rendering has been the result of looking at the
issue of how to tag a particular type of object.  The proposal author may
have gained insights after looking deeply at the issue, digging out example
images of the feature itself, possibly including signage, etc. that would
require similar amounts of work by carto people trying to figure out how to
represent the object.

Nobody is saying carto people are incapable of coming up with rendering
or that the proposer's wishes should override carto people, just that some
time and effort might be saved by coming up with a suggestion.
