One extreme example would be Logan County, Ohio. [1] Outside the county 
seat, Bellefontaine, virtually every road has a route shield, so I've 
been adding them all to route relations. So far, I've completed the 
western half of the county.

I'm primarily motivated by supporting the "shield renderer" that'll 
hopefully go up on osm.org someday. So any county or township that 
doesn't signpost its routes is not a particularly high priority for me.

Route relations certainly aren't going to supplant tags on ways for 
every use case. You'll still have to look at the individual ways to be 
sure about the road name.
