Yes, they are, and I would not object to ref=17 modifier=Truck, except 
that you run into problems with an alternate route that's signed with a 
suffix - ref=70A with no modifier doesn't include the information that 
it's a modified version of another route, and ref=70 modifier=A would be 
unclear as to how the A modifies the 70 (it could be 70-A).
