Meh. I was mostly referring to weird stuff like US:TX:FM:Business or
US:US:Business:MD. To me, US:US:Business:MD falling back on
US:US:Business is fine. Tagwatch processes should catch common cases
like US:US:Alternate and US:US:Business and ensure they get rendered
Besides, if we slapped the info in the ref tag, our naive data
consumers would just render a foot-wide shield with "460 Business" in
it. Or break at the space and do the exact thing Google's doing with
bannered routes already. Stupid data consumers are stupid data
consumers; there's no technical solution for it.
