Yes, that's what I've been wanting for quite some time: Factoring out all common styles in one stylesheet and only have a small stylesheet that specifies the differences in size and rendering for zoom levels. However, that sounds like a major effort that I have not been willing to investigate so far.
Help for that would be appreciated.

It's easy: mapnik bugs are introduced maliciously, while just nobody has fixed them yet in osma. :-)
