Good on you, Joseph.

I'd agree that seeing it is already in wide=spread use, it shouldn't need a
proposal, then voting.

One question though, please.

You've suggested that when drawing a way that "The way should not cross
streams, rivers or valleys".

How then do you handle gaps in the range? eg Main Range stretches from
here, south to there, & is crossed here by Cunningham's Gap, which includes
the east-west highway. Split the way, so that the range is shown each side
of the gap?
