while this might work often with stop signs it'll hardly work with maxspeed signs, because the changing maxspeed requires to split the highway, so that there would be 2 highways ending in the same node and forward would not be clear of which way.

When I map traffic signs it's mostly city limit, maxspeed/maxweight/maxheight and I do it generally for fellow mappers (including myself) because the effect of the sign I will map on the highway (typically linear, not just a point). Mapping on the side of the road has worked out perfectly for this scope.
