So how do you go about setting country-specific values?

In Australia, it's not uncommon for a Primary (& in some cases, Trunk!)
road to be a single lane dirt road!, & it would be nice to be able to show
them with the importance that they are to local residents of that area.

Is it simply a matter of specifying road types under the "Australia" page &
hoping that people read them?
