I don't know enough about US roads to really able to comment, but
is this just not the difference between:

  highway=trunk; ref=US666


  highway=secondary; ref=US666

I used trunk there rather than motorway, on the basis that in most
countries motorway is a very specific legal classification and I don't
think any US highway would ever meet that standard? if not then by all
means use highway=motorway with an appropriate ref tag.
