Website map has transitioned from Mapbox to Mapzen tiles

I noticed that the main map has recently switched from Mapbox vector tiles to Mapzen vector tiles. While I prefer the Mapbox cartography, Mapzen certain is nice to look at, and the integration makes sense since Mapillary is using the Mapzen geocoder.

One issue I have found with the new maps is the lack of any labels. I think having basic street labels would be useful to the casual user that is merely panning around looking for something. Beyond streets, it would be nice to see certain landmarks labeled. See this screengrab on Imgur for an example.

Just realized the Mapbox tiles are still available using the settings button, but the Mapzen map tiles have become default.
