Sounds good. Mind if I ask how it is done? (i.e. rendering rules for
rural vs town) - is it simply two different stylesheets, plus a list
of specified boundaries, or something responsive to POI density,
or...? If there's a blurb online somewhere that gives a hint I'd be
interested.

(Sorry if I'm taking this off-topic, not sure.)
