that's no problem at all: either they exist (then we map them with the
established tag), or they don't exist in your region and you won't need
this specific tag.

thing is, that hgv with supplementary sign still refers to a vehicle
combination gross weight and not to the actual weight, so we either tag
this as what it is, or the data won't be completely usable for who actually
drives a truck.
