Yes. I don't think we're at any risk of out-boggling Map Features quite yet.

Yes. It's just that there's now also 1xx, 2xx, 3xx etc.

AIUI that's because it was originally Regional Route 10. Re-signing it (last
year, I think) as NCN10, which hadn't been taken, was an expedient way of
getting rid of a Regional Route without causing much confusion. It's
certainly no more broken than the A-road numbering system where
"out-of-zone" roads such as the A14 etc. are now incredibly commonplace.
