Yes, I think that's an excellent idea. Obviously, everyone has their own
definition of "high value" (I'm quite anxious to make sure the NCN survives
in good shape, for example), but motorways, A and B roads should certainly
be a principal focus. I've been doing a bunch of work on the A55 in North
Wales and have noticed others working on A roads around the place.

That sort of heavy data lifting is a bit outside my comfort zone as well,
I'm afraid, but I wonder if maybe asking Simon just to increase the highway
weights at small scales might make them easier to spot...

who is currently mapping a country walk (fresh territory) from this
afternoon because it shouldn't _all_ be about armchair remapping ;)
