I don't think it's actually fictional in a lot of cases, just *super* rural
and often hard to tell from aerial imagery, at least what I've seen in the
Oklahoma and Kansas area.
However, being able to tell the known-good stuff from a raw unknown in
pretty much any renderer at a glance would be handy. For example, planning
routes through Death Valley or the Oregon Siskyous. Both are known to be
low quality deathtraps in TIGER.
