I plan on experimenting with basing some rendering decisions on the is_in
tag, which should work for Maryland's US business routes (assuming it
works at all; is_in values aren't really standardized).

From what I've read, all US highways in California should get similar
treatment, in that they're signed with different shields than the standard
ones.  Are there other regional sign variants for broader road networks in
the US (or elsewhere)?
