Most probably the tags are not recognised by renderer. Can you give ID-s/URL-s of the POIs to check this out?

Edit: you can check from which historic tags have rendering. These ones seem to have it undefined.

I edited original post and added ids. – Hubidubi Nov 21 '12 at 10:07

See key:historic. Not all values of that key have renderings in the default style.
