Is it indeed a significant problem? 80% does seem a enormous number given that most roads will indeed be unclassified. Can you give some examples? For me personally, unclassified vs. residential is not a problem, just tweaking and unclassified vs. tertiary is somewhat subjective as Richard suggests. I don't generally map in the UK, BTW, so I may be off.
