I'd probably split it in the city/town limit. (See ASCII illustration below)

== Town A - Town B Road == (city/town limit node) == Town B - Town A Road ==

This may also apply to villages, but the implementation may vary from user to user.

Tony Montana: Me, I want what's coming to me.
Manny Ribera: Oh, well what's coming to you?
Tony Montana: The world, chico, and everything in it.

OK, well just to split hairs a bit here ... which is what this list is all about ... :-) 

So you have a road between Calamba and Los Banos for example. Do you name it Calamba - Los Banos road, or Los Banos - Calamba Road? I guess people in both towns would have strong opinions about this! Or do you split it roughly half way, and call it both, depending on what town you're nearest? I guess that would make more sense, but its more hassle to implement. 

Another thought. Do you just do this at the town level? How about if there's a village on the way? Or a road connecting two villages? 

I'm still of the opinion than any information at all is better than no information, but these seem like protocols worth hashing out. 

Won't be able to make the mapping thing tomorrow unfortunately, but have fun, and have a great Christmas/Festive Season/<insert Politically correct name here> all!
