I don't think we should be storing any prefix as part of the network=* or
ref=* tags (thus my suggestion for network=us_route/state_route/county_route
or similar). For example the "I-x" denotation shouldn't show up anywhere in
our tags. If it's an interstate it should be tagged as such (I suggest
network=interstate but I think there's a precedent on the wiki) and the
renderer can add the "I-" if it wants to.
