Good to hear some themes are already included.

The new themes I'm proposing are:

states/provinces (adm-1)
label areas for:
- marine polygons
- land polygons
- elevation points (mountains)
- geography points (capes, etc)

I'm very keen on adding states/provinces (adm-1) as that is a top-10 popular
download on the Natural Earth site and it requires the most effort to
maintain. Besides the demand side, the more eyes we have on it to catch
updates as countries redraw their borders the better.

The label areas would leverage the dataset for the natural science crowd and
are very small files.
