Amazing, this looks fantastic! Can't wait to see this as the official
map of OSM US.

Is this something that could be used in a Carto stylesheet, or does it

I know it's not really relevant to this thread, but since you have a
separate stylesheet from the standard OSM one, maybe you could reduce
the prominence of standard highway labels on residential/unclassified
