Someone seems to have made route relations for a lot of these already,
with a network of US:MO:Supplemental, so that's what I chose to key off
> Oregon/Washington/Oklahoma State Tour Routes
Not currently supported. Can you point me at some information about
> Oklahoma/Kansas Turnpike
There's support for the Kansas Turnpike, but it's not rendered because the
route relation doesn't have a network on it. (I don't trust every named
highway with its own shield to have a globally unique name, so I key off
the network, which in most cases I expect to be the same as the main state
network.) I'll have to add the Chikasaw Turnpike; I don't see any
information about shields for the other Oklahoma turnpikes on Wikipedia.

Mostly I've followed the networks already in use: US:TX, US:TX:LOOP,
US:TX:SPUR, US:TX:FM, US:TX:RM, US:TX:FM:Business, US:TX:NASA, US:TX:PR,
some others. A lot of those still don't render because they duplicate the
subnetwork in the ref tag, so Loop 5 (picking an arbitrary number) might
be represented as network=US:TX:LOOP, ref=5 Loop. Once the ref is changed
to a plain "5", it would be rendered properly.
I chose to treat the Old San Antonio Road as a member of the US:TX network
with a ref of OSR. I can't remember if it renders that way at the moment.
