  Not really - that's just ignoring names on the main map and showing 
superrelation names on the right in a separate legend. Try figuring out 
which "NB" is which without using the mouseover highlight.

I ended up having to code specifically for the data (something you 
couldn't do internationally). 
means that at 
route 645 just gets a ref but "National Byway (Southwell Loop)" gets a 
name, so that you can see at 
which one is which.

Interestingly I'd say that 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1425019 is actually named 
correctly. although a quick look at the route suggests that the "phantom 
mergers" have been at it again. :(

Best Regards,
