possible a minor point, hopefully not too pedantic:
we're not marking the signs on the map - the sign is only there to
give information about some feature, which is what we should be doing.
the presence or not of a (any) sign is irrelevant.
signs can be wrong, mis-placed, missing or facing the wrong direction
if we're going to mark highway=stop for a junction where a driver has
to stop, it is the junction that needs marking, not some point further
down the road
