[Talk-us] [Tagging] "refs" describing routes instead of ways

In parts of Southern CA that I've worked on, aside from the known/signed 
CA-, I-, and county [A-Z]- route numbers, there are either:
- No road numbers (LA, Orange, San Bernardino)
- Road number in road books and rarely anywhere else (Kern County). I put 
these in ref when I come across them in research, but don't like that they 
render, and would rather put them elsewhere.

All bridges in the state have bridge numbers that are signed on or near 
them, and I put them in bridge_ref so as not to conflict with the route (in 
ref) that they carry.

I really don't want/expect anything to render other than the route numbers 
in ref.
