[Talk-us] Another random road reclassification

I just noticed user SimMoonXP (
http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/SimMoonXP ) reclassifying a few
isolated stretches of KS highway 7 in the Kansas City area. I sent a
message asking why and he indicated that he was reclassifying anything
with a separated grade intersection as motorway, even if it was only
for a short stretch. For example:


I know there is some disagreement about road classification,
especially when it comes to trunk but I'm pretty sure most people
would agree that this is incorrect. Thoughts?

Unfortunately I think this user has been making such changes across
the US. You might want to check your area. I will likely revert the
changes in the KC area. Does anything else need to be looked at?
