Well as per the example on the wiki page, the LHC isn't a motorway, so
I don't know anyway possible anyone would say that is anything but

It was useful however, because it made a nice pretty rendered picture.

Same with other examples, a garden bed usually isn't an industrial
area, but someone might want their rose garden to render in pink,
again that is completely incorrect.
