Note however rendering OSM-Carto without labels and producing a separate 
client side rendered labeling would be a possible approach.

Vector tiles is a buzzword occasionally suggested as a solution to any 
and all problems in map rendering but so far i have not seen any 
practical proposal for a client rendered vector tiles concept that 
would be able to serve the mapper feedback purposes of the current OSM 
standard style.  Rory's port of OSM-Carto to vector tiles is not 
suitable for client side rendering.
