I think this is part of the 'UK' problem. While some reference numbers 
are not displayed 'on the ground', increasingly they ARE being used in 
official announcements such as accident reports, road closures, planning 
applications and the like so that the relevant authorities know they are 
talking about the same stretch of road, but that does not help us 'mere 
mortals' unless someone actually publishes a map to show the situation 
on the ground. That OSM IS in a position to fill this hole where often 
even the official maps do not because OS does not provide a rendering 
using them is just another plus for OSM. But I have no problem accepting 
that this should be on a UK specific map rather than something dumbed 
down for the whole world ...
