    i'll argue also that it's a rendering choice, and different
    rendering<br>
    engine designers may choose differently. right now, what Phil did<br>
    is basically for demo purposes. there had been talk about maybe<br>
    deploying it on openstreetmap.us as a us centered version of<br>
    OSM, but that hasn't happened (and it's been a while). <br>
    <br>
    what it demonstrates quite effectively is that we have all the
    tagging<br>
    we need for shields right now; we don't need a new tagging<br>
    proposal, just a lot of hard work building out the relations and<br>
    tagging them properly.<br>
