Great work so far! I enjoy reading the MUTCD (nerd alert). I'll think of
some things to add. So far I think we could include the no hazmat signs (
http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/htm/2009/part2/fig2b_30_longdesc.htm) which are
governed by the key:hazmat tag (

I think that with more efforts these days to improve routing with street
signs (https://twitter.com/peterneubauer/status/671660804484239360), it
would be useful to create a 1:1 mapping of all MUTCD traffic control
devices. This list is a great starting point, as exclusions are important
to routing, and not typically observable via air photo.
