If we're going to go by our own personal and unexplained opinions, I
think it's best looking when the landuse does not cover the right of
way (not that this does not mean the landuse ways are parallel to the
highway ways - they often are not).

It's also the most functional.  Rights of way are not one-dimensional lines.
