[Talk-us] MO Stare Road Classifications.

Hi,

    Typically, regional classifications do not map into OSM 
classification, and often conflict.

   If a freeway / expressway is constructed as an OSM motorway, it 
should be motorway.

   If a 'local' road serves an industrial area it should be unclassified 
because it doesn't serve residences.

    And probably others.   Even within OSM in the US, there is not an 
absolute level of classification that has been agreed on and verifiable 
by everyone.
