I don't think that closeness to any official sign is the goal.

As far as I understood, at least something like "maxheight" is not 
necessarily a depiction of any real sign. If there's a bridge that's 3m 
high then one would place a maxheight tag even if there is no sign on 
the ground. Therefore I think that relying too much on road traffic 
signage is a problem.
