Perfect,  Eugene. Just what I thought of. Maybe we should place this info
on Philippine mapping convention wiki.

I'm having a hard time redoing and undoing edits for the bridge and tunnel
names and I guess we need to make this a standard.

And as for using ref no., Philippines I believe is not  familiar about
numbers and they prefer road names. Ref numbers can only be used for
special purposes.
