This isn't a problem with Mapnik, but a change to openstreetmap.org's Mapnik XML. I would post an issue here https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto

As I have tagged many, many natural preserves and wilderness boundaries, I will REALLY miss seeing the little green "NR" text on areas with this very high level of protection.  Can we bring this back?  Please? Was it just an oversight / mistake?

Nonetheless, beautiful renderings that included NR where it exists simply don't visually convey fully accurate information any longer.  Is that what our map is becoming?  Mapnik is known as our "Standard" renderer, our "trade dress" if you will.  While I fully support it becoming better, I (and I suspect many others) must say something when I see it becoming stupider.  Truly, I hope this was just an honest mistake and somebody takes this as (a slightly impolite) bug report.
