Some great questions here!

I think the ref tag is technically not required when relations are
present. I'm not an expert - proper rendering might be some time away yet
on the default Mapnik / Osmarender.

The convention for highway network relations is just to use "278" - the
'network' portion is combined if / when required. In Potlatch, it currently
displays as a member of
"US:US US 278"

I believe this is currently just a rendering problem.
