I'm happy to support a shades of red/yellow road system for the default

The "UK" colours only really work at small scale with heavy casing (with
landuse eg forests muted). The green for trunk roads used for OS 1:50,000
is only recent, much darker than the green used for OSM, and a
cartographical abomination (in my view), being much too dominant. Until a
few years ago, it was only motorways that were different. The colours at
1:25,000 have always been slightly different again.

As ever, if you want something done your own particular way, do it
yourself. Rendering isn't *that* difficult.

The default map needs to work at all zooms, and all* latitudes.

*excluding the tricky bits around the poles, obviously
