[talk-au] Newcastle Inner Bypass - Motorway or not ?

I just looked to see what Google and Whereis do.

Whereis calls the Hume Highway the M31 throughout its length in NSW.  
Many of the actual 'A' sections are coloured as motorway.

Google calls it the A31 to the border where it is actually the M31, but 
only seems to colour the actual RMS 'M' sections as motorways (even 
though it has the labelling wrong).

I'd like to indicate freeway class sections as motorways, however, I can 
see the argument to just objectively use the RMS classifications.  Will 
save edit wars down the track to just have one easy rule.
