[Talk-GB] Ref names on Residential roads

Yeah, I think I preferred the highway_authority_ref only to differentiate it from a reference applied by any other body. You could have more than one official_ref depending on the referencing body.

Where I see these on C/U roads I change the ref= tag to highway_authority_ref=




I prefer that to official_ref. Much clearer origin.

General query:
As there are many of these around the country & auto edits are seriously frowned upon by a minority, is there a semi-auto way to edit. For instance, can the data be downloaded as XML, amended in a text editor (find/replace) & then uploaded to merge with the database? Is that possible in JOSM?
