Wouldn't it make sense to leave that responsibility to the projects,
similar to the decentralized generation of files consumed by Taginfo for
the projects feature? If a project team wants the added exposure via the
wiki, they will put in the effort to do some automation.

By the way, I'm in favour of allowing all OSM-based renderings to be
featured, not just the default style. People already obsess too much
about what is or isn't rendered by the default style imo.

Taginfo already allows including an url for an icon-sized image with
each tag. What do you think about allowing another optional url for a
larger image? That wouldn't be limited to node features and could be
used in the wiki for rendering examples.
