Hmm, that's true. Those are two different bits of information. Perhaps that
is what the network=* tag is for. I still think we need something to specify
what kind of route it is (similar to the difference between name=* and
highway=*).

For your example, can I suggest:
  type=route
  route=state
  network=US:NY
  is_in:state=PA
