[OSM-talk] Trunk and primary routes in the UK

I seem to have stirred up a bit of a hornet's nest by raising this issue - for which I apologise. The key issue - I have now learnt from this mailing list - seems to be the difference in the UK between the "primary route network" (green signs, conventionally tagged in OSM as highway=trunk) and "primary routes" (all A roads - green or white signs; green ones tagged highway=trunk, white ones tagged highway=primary). I respect the established convention and will not make any further changes (I assume all A roads in the UK have been done by now?). AFAIK I have corrected back to the established convention the very few changes that I have made. On the assumption (:>) that I am not entirely unintelligent, I do still find the instruction on the main map features page of the osm wiki very confusing - that is what started this thread for me. Perhaps you, or someone else long-established in the world of OSM, could consider editing the wiki to make it clearer?
