Is there *anyone* that actually can speak to what *is* common practice
in the US? When I've asked, I've always drawn a lot of replies and come
away more confused than before.

Of course, a lot of what I map is in
a gray area where 'tertiary', 'residential', 'unclassified' and 'track'
tend to have blurred boundaries, and 4WD vehicles are strongly
recommended. The road where I'm parked in
https://www.flickr.com/photos/ke9tv/14041171575 is a signed and
numbered county highway, but I couldn't bring myself to tag it
'tertiary'.
