I just had a quick look at the z17 stylesheet. That seems to use
amenity=doctors throughout *except* for the rendering of house
numbers when it uses amenity=doctor.

If I were amending the stylesheet I'd just be tempted to add support
for either, so if you want to enforce one tag over the other I'm
probably not the best one to ask to make the changes <g>.

(As an example, from when checking whether to use a landuse caption
- only if no other caption exists for an area:
<rule e="way" k="amenity|shop|tourism"
station|supermarket|organic|hotel|hostel|camp_site|information" />

It would be so easy just to add |doctor in the list next to |doctors

You could argue deleting the s would be easier still...)
