hmm, Interstates are not state highways, so the fact that some state 
highways (for what states?) have a 55-mph speed limit is not really 

There are some Interstates which have lower speed limits as well, but I 
think the OSM descriptions basically say: "if it meets the spec, *or* is 
a designated Interstate", then mark it as a motorway.
