Hi J.P.

This sounds reasonable.  Do we have a map that shows which areas of 
the province are French area vs English area.  For us non-NBers.   Or 
I suppose one could guess by looking at the existing tags there.  (I 
would assume Fredericton is English area?)  If we have a list then 
could update the NB wiki page.

While mapping street names, I tend to use "name=x Street" and "name:fr=Rue x" in English-speaking areas of the province, with the opposite in French areas. I see no reason we can't do something similar with destination signs, even if the double-colon may look unwieldy.
