This appears not to be done.

The Homer Babbidge Library is defined on an area, not just a node, but the building isn't drawn. Also, not all of the libraries linked to in the original report are drawn.

Further investigation suggests that it might be due to the area not being explicitly tagged with building=yes. (I'll find out when it refreshes.) Is there any conceivable reason for not making it implicit? The presets in JOSM for library, post office, theather and probably some others don't automatically set the building tag. Should this be fixed in the renderer or in JOSM?

Areas will now show icons too, if an icon was already present for a node of the same type.

The Homer Babbidge Library building had been rendering before, but it now also has an icon.
