Hi everyone, I was reviewing highway tags in south-central NSW (initially to add in missing paved and unpaved tags) and noted that road classification differ greatly between adjacent local gov areas. In central Federation Shire Council, north of Mulwala and Corowa, the bulk of rural roads are tagged as residential whereas in all surrounding LGAs they are tagged as unclassified, as shown in this Overpass query: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/YCa
(the query shows 4 adjacent LGAs, with the Federation Shire in the lower centre). 
This is a rural cropping /grazing region, not a densely settled irrigation area. Is it appropriate to re-tag the rural "residential" roads as "unclassified'' for consistency, after inspecting each on satellite images, leaving residential roads in and around small towns only? Thanks for your help, Ian
