Administrative boundaries that are rendered in default mapnik layer are disturbing and ugly. They interfere with roads and ways and make the overall map-reading experience a nightmare. Do we really need them? No major mapping service like Google Maps, Bing or Yahoo Maps uses such a feature in default view. Lets hide them from the default render on

This is not a question with a definite answer but the start for a discussion. It should be discussed, but most likely not here.

Where should this be discussed then? There is no reply in the official forum either...

You should probably file an trac ticket with an improvement request against the mapnik component

There was a reply on the forum, though the forum is sometimes not very busy. If you want more of a discussion, you could ask on one of the mailing lists, probably "Talk".
