Not entirely tangential question - Is there any chance that the designation tag will be rendered in the default mapnik anytime soon / ever? Or is there somewhere that already exists that renders designations? 

I've been adding them across the paths / tracks I regularly walk, but it's hard to spot where I've missed them, and I'm sure I've missed loads.

Also, slightly more tangentially - I recall a conversation a little while ago, when I was too busy to respond, around barrier=* becoming rendered at lower zoom levels - is there any movement on that, as I'd be very much in favour of it.

Thanks in advance,
