I started one of the older threads on the same topic, so I've been 
following this with interest.  It seems the majority is in favour of the 
above change.

Richard - are you prepared to humour the rest of us and give this a go?

Andy A. - is there a straightforward way of distinguishing between 
different classes of NCR / RCR / LCR on OCM, say for example by 
including a "colour = XXX" tag that the renderer uses?  Apart from 
making the map easier to view, the routes could match the signs on the 

Finally, I bumped into one of our Council's rights of way officers 
today, who has a lot to do with cycling provision.  I'd previously 
brought OCM to her attention and she was very impressed.  She's been 
showing her colleagues, and realises that there's no point trying to 
produce a dedicated map of cycling infrastructure as it already exists 
as OCM, and she's looking into how the Council's data can be 
incorporated - a big thumbs up both to Andy and all the mappers!
