What's required to switch this from "demo" to "used on default osm.org
layer" ? Is it only a mater of updating the rendering stack and
comming up with a nice UI, or is there some issue with the technique,
like increased server ressources, sub-par rendering, or browser
support ? I know that this "only" part is actually a lot of work, but
I wonder if there's a blocking issue.
