I think I'd prefer to ignore unusual or one-off sign variations like
those.  Let me put it this way: Are there any other places where a local
organization responsible for making and placing signs along a route has an
official policy of placing signs that differ significantly in appearance
from the signs used along the rest of the network?  US Business routes in
Maryland meet these criteria.  Where else is this true?
