It is not uncommon that views must be registered just like tables. For example with GeoServer needs it absolutely. So you can for sure register the geometry column of the view. I do not know if it would make Mapnik to work with views but I believe it might. There are other cases where I think that registering the views will simplify their usage a lot, for example if the view is reprojected by using "select transform(geom,xxxx)"
