* Changed rendering of the following objects:
  - Placenames (new algorithm for deciding what placenames to render
on low zoomlevels)
  - Road shields
  - Oneway arrows
  - Glaciers
  - Marina labels
  - Station labels

  - amenity=car_sharing (not relevant for the general public)

  - shop=dive (use shop=scuba_diving)
