I suspect that the color conventions used for motorway and trunk highways in
the default OSM rendering are derived from UK mapping conventions.
There are many instances were one might want distinctive rendering on an
region-by-region basis. More pominent rendering of sub-national
administrative boundaries in the U.S. is another case. As far as I
understand, whether for technical or policy reasons, such regional rendering
differences are not done in the default OSM rendering.
