While they can be very different, a router should still be able to prefer a
primary road to navigate you from city A to B and avoid secondary or
tertiary roads. Of course in Germany it might be a smooth asphalted road
and in another country a sand road, but that doesn't matter.

Are the current router properly routing over the Irish roads ? Can they
properly deal with the classification changes ? Or are those changes
ignored because the speed limits are properly tagged.
