Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Not so long ago, amenity = car_rental was shown by Mapnik with an icon - and a name could be added. Now nothing is shown for these tags - neither icon nor name.

In this view http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2720708286#map=19/55.39935/10.37690
you can see a node defined with tags:

amenity = car_rental  
name = Avis

But in this view
nothing is shown for these tags.

This is just one example - I have checked other car rentals that previously displayed both icon and name - but now display nothing.

Is this an error to be corrected - or do new rules for car rentals apply?

Mapnik is simply a program that can generate image files from data and style information. So I think you are talking about the default rendering at http://www.openstreetmap.org/

A while back they switched from using straight Mapnik XML style definitions to CartoCSS definitions and the team that works on that have been "improving" and "fixing" things. Quotes around those as I've seen complaints on mailing lists regarding things that used to be rendered and no longer are.

I think the new CartoCSS stuff is maintained at https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto and I think there is an "issues" link there where this type of problem can be reported.
