I've been tagging local disused pubs with disused=yes and hoping that
the renderer will catch up with what was agreed in the wiki for some
time now :) Unfortunately there's an increasing number of boarded-up
pubs round here :(
So I raised
and someone else raises
so go figure. There's clearly a bit of disagreement about whether
disused and abandoned stuff should be shown. IMO they should not, not on
the Mapnik rendering at least. The prettiest, first-impression,
public-facing view should only contain active services and amenities,
ditto rail lines, roads, canals etc. because the average user will only
care about what's relevant and useful right now.
Tongue-in-cheek suggestion: new tag, visible=yes/no or relevant=yes/no.
