At the moment, this is a bit painful, but quite possible to fix up manually.


The full extent of the problem is visible through the OSM inspector,
highways layer.
http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/?view=highways&lon=138.53329&lat=-34.91724&zoom=10&overlays=name_missing_major,name_missing_minor,name_fixme

We actually have the data and explicit permission for this available to us:
http://data.sa.gov.au/dataset/roads

... it's just tricky to manually find and name things using tools like QGIS.

I tend to:
 - Load OSMI
 - Find a dense area of unnamed roads
 - Manually check and reconcile each one against the shapefile

While there might be better ways, and this won't catch roads that "blend"
into each other; it's at least a start.

Annoyingly, OSMI refreshes once a week so you don't see much progress.



Would people be interested if I started up a mapcraft job to work on this
sort of thing?
http://mapcraft.nanodesu.ru/pie/288 is an example of one doing building
mapping - naming roads is probably a lot easier.
