   I add a building=yes which renders the building footprint, and also 
eliminates the name wrapping around the corners.

  I try to add something with 'substance' - landuse, etc to eliminate the 
name wraps.

   I find it difficult to be a monk who labors away at a mountain of XML 
that may see the light some day.   I also like to show people what I am 
working on - it doesn't need to be fancy, but I also use it to double check 
my work.   Just as reading your essay in reverse helps you catch errors, so 
does looking at recent work in one form of rendering.
