Thank you Steve, I was not aware of that.  I will have a look at that
and see if I can create a simple family of styles that is based on the
default style.  I might even start using the noname style myself and
add stuff to it, for highlighting incompletely mapped items, such as

 * highway=crossing without crossing=*
 * highway=bus_stop without shelter=yes/no
 * highway=bus_stop,shelter=yes without lit=yes/no

Best regards,
