A few of us were just asking on irc what a US-style tile theme would
look like?

Naturally, I think highway shields should be included.

Lars Ahlzen suggested elevation in feet rather than metres.

Ian Dees liked the idea of fewer different colors for roads, blue /
motorway, green / trunk, red / primary ...

Perhaps de-emphasize pubs and make bowling alleys more prominent?

Let's brainstorm ... what would you have OSM data look like in USA.

For extra credit, can it also look good in Canada and Mexico?  Can we
show hockey rinks? ;-)
