This is fine for hard limits on what can and can't go on a road, but I was 
wondering whether some kind of metric could be applied so that a routefinding 
algorithm could do some magical weighting to choose to use the road only if 
it is the most sane choice. I.E. If you're doing a trip from effectively one 
end of the road to another it won't route you 30 miles around it just because 
the road has been marked inappropriate.


ps- I should indeed read the wiki more.
