OSM doesn't have a business model that supports that usage. It is not
something that they would want to encourage, because there is no way for
them to pay for the servers needed to support a general move from Google
My understanding is that the standard style is primarily as an aid to
mappers, and secondarily as a demonstrator to show that it is possible
to create reasonable looking maps.
