posted that earlier already
mkgmap does what you put in the style file. default style does not include
ref relations.
mapnik doesn't support it
don't know about osmarender

you can update the wiki. everyone can edit. I don't care and will not start
a edit war or wiki edit war  because this data isn't used yet and there is
better things to do.
