I believe the issue is that in a proper network you would expect not to find gaps at specific zoom levels, when there are actually connections in reality (those should show up at the same time (zoom), or not, if you want to make a nice network map).

If classes like motorway or trunk are bound to legal or physical characteristics rather than only a hierarchical network, and aren’t “complete” from a network aspect, you will get the gaps.
