Austria has not had the best experience with the kind of "shadow
tagging" you are suggesting here. The import was ages ago and still the
database is littered with "highway:plan.at=*" objects.
(Also, they mungled the highway tags but left the name tags alone,
leading Mapnik to render ghost roads like on this picture:
I'm just saying - if a speedy cleanup is desired, I would import
everything with proper highway tags and accept that the map looks a bit
chaotic for a while, rather than have the stuff lying around forever.
