Actually, sometimes they use NCR and RCR!

I think it's been observed on the talk@ list that ncn_ref is quite an  
insular tag, and cycle_ref would be better. Adding lcn_ref, too, would  
seem to exacerbate the problem.

But for the time being I just use NR47 and RR47. (Am not very good at  
remembering to add route=cycle, though... slapped wrists.)

The free text "proposed NR41" that Andy cited is also one of mine.  
This is for a route which will be NR41 but isn't, yet. Any thoughts on  
a better way to tag this?

cheers
Richard
