Why are we trying to shove all this information into the ref=* tag? What
I've done in the past is make route relations.
If I'm working on US Route 45 I create a relation tagged like so:
If I'm working on WI state road 29 I create a relation tagged like so:
and for county road HHH:
I think we could discuss what belongs in the "network" tag but I don't think
the "ref" tag should contain anything other than the actual numeric or
alphanumeric reference of the road. No "CR" or "SR" or acronym for the
human-name of the road.
The fact that the renderers don't show the route relations nicely right now
is a separate issue that we probably need to deal with by rendering a
US-specific set of tiles.
