On a bb so I can't reply as well as I'd like.

As for the network=* check out US and Aussie tagging guidelines its on the wiki

As for the shields this is deviating from the topic at hand but for it
the shield can be derived from the lookup table on the wiki and then
extra preprossesing in osm2pgsql to assign a shield based on admin
polygons + info from the lookup table
