[Talk-us] US Historic Route shield rendering

I'm wondering if we can broaden the tagging for US Historic Route 66 and
perhaps retag the existing relations for it's various routes, since the
shields for this route are the same for other US Historic Routes (such as
former alignments of US 30 in Oregon), save for 1 2-block segment of US 66
in my neighborhood (which rather than saying "HISTORIC ROUTE" says "MINGO
GREENWAY" for reasons unknown).

I propose rather than going with no ref and "US:US" for the network, we go
with the ref on the sign, and "US:US:Historic" for the network.  Not
entirely sure how to handle bannered segments of this network, though:  For
example, in my neighborhood, two different routes are bannered as
"1926-1932" and "1932-1974" (the "*-1988" alignments are currently
signposted as either I 40 Business or OK 66, with no historic signage, but
could potentially fit the "1974-1988" banner in Tulsa for historical
completeness if we're going to add relations for unsigned segments of
historic highways).
