to the city of Cambridge, and because there is no line rendered, it
looks like they look like place names.
I wonder whether name is the appropriate tag in this case, and if you

Certainly I think it should specifically not be rendered except on a
public transport speciality map. I'm not sure about the standard Mapnik
- I can see some part labels arising from this and I don't know whether
it is because it hasn't rendered yet, or is being taken out.
