three times now, and as you've suggested supermarket yourself to be
moved, I've read three votes (leaded by batchoy) to change it and none
The only thing mentioned to be kept as amenity should be
amenity=pharmacy, which I perfectly understand to keep the "medical
stuff" under one key.

First of all, my goal is to get the map features page into a "clean
state" - as I see this as the root for any other stuff. There are still
a lot of things that just "don't fit well", and keeping it that way
because some renderer might not render it for some time is basically an
argument for a complete stand still. To my experience, when you know the
right direction to go, it's much less painful to change it right away
than to wait for some vodoo magic to happen.
In it's current state, osmarender seems to be missing a *lot* of icons
already in map features, so it's better to fix the map features page
first - just before they're implemented "anywhere" else.
BTW: I guess the most time consuming thing to get icons into osmarender
is not to implemented it, but to find the right icon for it that's
approved be the voting process. So changing the key/value pair should be
In recent days I've added more than 50 new icons for mappaint - as I
simply implemented it and I expect that some icons will be deeply
criticised. But IMHO that's a much faster process to come to some
conclusion than what we currently have.
So implementing this stuff in osmarender should be pretty easy IMHO - if
someone actually find's the time and motivation and (probably the most
difficult thing) there's a common sense how the icon(s) should look like
- but that's already done for supermarket.

Sorry, don't understand you here. Example for what?
