Wasn't at SOTM: this is a visual mapnik style editor?
Does any code actually exist for this as yet, or is it just an idea?

Might be useful to render different classes of building in different
colours, ie: educational buildings in blue, leisure in green,
government in pink, and otherwise a generic pale yellow. Or similar to
the landuse colours.

That's probably require a slightly more rational building tag use
though. Do we know if the building attributes tags are actually being
used by people?
