[buildings] "mapnik" rendering: building=supermarket: inconsistent rendering

The rendering of building=supermarket areas is almost the same shade of pale pink as landuse=retail areas. Since the latter very frequently surrounds the former, it makes the buildings difficult to see. It is also inconsistent with the muddy raspberry colour of other buildings, and it's difficult to see why supermarkets are a special case when no other distinction appears to be made (for all that purpose-built supermarkets are architecturally pretty dull). An example:
- at http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=51.760755&mlon=-1.210727&zoom=18&layers=M
- There's another example slightly to the E.
- Contrast with other buildings in the area.
I may be wrong in my expectations, of course. Stylistically, if the current rendering is all about visually obscuring the dull, obvious, and ordinary stuff in appropriate landuse areas, what should we be using to lower the profile of residential housing in residential areas (something I dislike the look of when it's inconsistently applied in the data, as it frequently is)? ;-)
