I agree. In fact more than that, I think it would be damaging.
For most people, the idea of "abstract" mapping data is a hard concept
to grasp. The map renderings (in practice Mapnik, as I doubt most
non-participants ever touch the layers menu) make the project concrete.
Without this, I think OSM becomes largely invisible.
