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.
