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

When zooming out objects become smaller and thinner. At some point, to avoid messy images, the renderer ignores small and thin objects or area fragments. While some rendering models ignore land objects (islands, peninsulas ... e.g. Finnish islands), like here http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=4/59.91/13.18 others ignore water objects (tiny lakes, channels ... maybe by enlarging the land objects), like here http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=4/59.91/13.18&layers=T. So, what should be correct? Thanks.

Why should any of these two layers be incorrect? They have different rendering preferences.

Who are the customers for your rendering? What are they most interested in seeing at that zoom level?
