For Canada, we have attached to each road the 'is_in tag, so it shows
exactly where it is.
However, I would agree that if all the roads in that suburb area all have
that same tag, it's kind of redundent.
I think it is because we dont (at least not yet) have that polygon to
work with, so thats why it was added.
However, NOW in Toronto (for example) we DO have those admin areas as
polygons. (available, but not imported yet)
Would it not be then a relation which is attached to everything in the area,
where that polygon (its self) does not get rendered?
