I'd be more inclined to believe this if you weren't the only one arguing
this and you had some local knowledge, and similar local/express
arrangements are tagged in the same manner in Texas when I was looking
for how to tag that section.  This is compounded by an extended history
of inserting your opinion where your local knowledge isn't, and where
your knowledge of live usage is critically impaired.
