I don't map other signs, for most other signs I map the result on the
way (e.g. maxspeed sign, no overtaking). Why would I map the sign
separately ?
Give ways and stop signs are slightly different, because they usually
indicate a single place on the road where one has to stop. The result
of the sign is commonly mapped as a node, not as a tag on the way
(yes, I know there are cases where a relation might be needed).

So yes, for me the position of the other signs is not important. Feel
free to add them if you feel they are important.
