the disused namespace makes a lot of sense for this kind of in between
circumstance. there are a few things in the Albany NY area that fall in
this category, like the stub ends of the Dunn Bridge which are there, and
have to be maintained because they're part of a heavily used bridge, but
are supposed to connect to a highway that will never be constructed.


note that i just noticed the tagging was less than ideal, and tweaked it,
so the rendering may reflect the older tagging for a little bit.
