Rather amusing, really. I noticed that this had happened overnight to a 
road near me, and messaged the user to draw his attention to this 
discussion - without twigging that the 'PeterIto' I was talking to was 
actually Peter Miller of ITO (I can be a bit slow on the uptake sometimes)!

Having followed this discussion, I must say I'm rather surprised that 
Peter has done this without at least adding a source:maxspeed or 
maxspeed:type tag at the same time.
