I would say the question is "what happens when one of these routes is 
adopted as a state route and then signed?"

If it retains the same route number as this "reference route", and is then 
signed that way, I would say that ref is the appropriate tag.

Otherwise, a separate tag seems correct, since we may ultimately have to 
carry both IDs.

I might put parentheses around the value if it is not currently signed that
