I'd not met " highway=no" before, although I have used not:name. But I'm beginning to worry about the principle that we are cluttering up the OSM databse with stuff that is "not" there. OSM is about what is on the ground. I don't know what ITO's particular interests are, but should we really be putting negative stuff on OSM, just because another map is wrong?
