I often would like to have only Polygon, but no POI. transparent is 
possible, but not nice, as at least on old GPS it slows them down....
A seperate style-file file would be best...

For me the reason to use add-pois-to-areas is that I want to be able to 
find certain stuff via search function, but actually I would even prefer 
not to have a seperate POI. As that is not possible AFAIK (searching for 
POI that do not exist in the map but only some indexes - which is what I 
really would like to have) - at least not have a myriad of POI on top 
and a seperate file would be needed (twould probably for me cut the 
number of POI from polygons by 50%).
