Everyone has different interests.  Just because they are local doesn't 
mean that someone is going to be interested in cycle infrastructure.

The main things to remember is not to make subjective judgements are 
about suitability - record the details that an ideal router would use to 
make its own judgements - and don't use guidebooks, etc., as as source 
of information - named routes may have database rights associated with them.

Don't expect to be able to get routers to take the decisions you would 
make.  If you go too far that way, you will end up tagging for the 
renderer (routers are considered renderers), which is not allowed.
