Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but some of the lines seem to indicate the

Line 3030, id=301986 seems to describe a change from network=US:I:Business
to network=US:I and ref=69 to ref=69 Business.

Looking at id=172892 and id=1745481 is also confusing. They're both truck
routes, but one gets Truck in the ref and the other doesn't?

I'm not saying any of this is wrong - I don't understand the US highway
network well enough.

You might want to seek out the top few editors of relations who aren't on
the list and point them at
and invite them to join in.
