Not what you asked, but I reject the notion that because the tag is
"boundary=protected_area" that what should be rendered is a line on the
boundary, rather than an area.  I view this tag as denoting something
about the area within the polygon -- basically landuse=conservation
and/or leisure=nature_reserve.

So I would treat these boundary tags as being about the area and use a
green fill, and not focus so much on the boundary proper.

I realize that mine is not a universally-held view :-)
