This is the case in the UK. You do get gaps in the network, to the extent
a section of a trunk road has been replaced with a short section of
but not really a problem. Both are rendered in a way that indicates they
are preferred routes
and humans looking at a map are good at spotting that there is a continuous
though one segment has different legal/physical characteristics.
Where the problem comes is with those who insist that a trunk road passing
city or large town should be tagged as residential. A good example is the
through the centre of the city of Aberystwyth:
In my opinion, tagging the trunk roads (and secondary roads) passing
through that city
as residential would be very unhelpful.
