I see your post has been hijack and gone off in another direction.  It 
should have made as a new thread guys.  Anyway to answer your question 
the answer is yes.  People are adding this data when they map out these 
roads so it is there.  It is just a matter of telling the compiler to 
add it in.  If your making them yourself you will have to give a bit 
more info on how you are making them.  If your downloading them from a 
site just shoot off a email to site owner.  Ask them if they can add 
them in.
