There's a catchall at the end of #roads-text-name that draws labels on all kinds of things. This should be reworked into explicit rules.
At the moment it'll label all kinds of linear features, due to the rather bizarre sql query. It should only render roads, and if other things (underground power cables?) need labelling, there should be explicit rules for these to allow people to turn them on and off as they see fit.
Also, the catch-all leads to needing to explicitly override the values (e.g. halo-radius: 0;) on the more explicit rules.
