I see from later that this is about the UK. I am 99% sure that we do
not have this rule in any of the US states.
There's a general problem with trying to encode rules like this; OSM as
a group doesn't really want to declare a default and make all
Interstates (motorways) in the US have special learner tags. And we
don't really want to publish a machine-readable set of default rules
that all routers can be expected to use. I think that having
programmatic defaults would help.
