Strange ref on a few roads

Hi,

While analyzing some OSM data, I came across some roads with odd refs - I have fixed some myself, but there are other I don't know what to do about.

5 digit refs, are these real or typos?
http://osm.org/way/122350861
http://osm.org/way/97528693
http://osm.org/way/160728433

Refs that seems to have been used incorrectly:
http://osm.org/way/161008371
http://osm.org/way/161008526
http://osm.org/way/161008769

Refs that I believe are real, but may follow a new system? (maybe they should be mentioned in the wiki):
http://osm.org/way/94497806
http://osm.org/way/121204010
http://osm.org/way/151740028
http://osm.org/way/151746009
http://osm.org/way/152856860
http://osm.org/way/155607409
http://osm.org/way/155607465
http://osm.org/way/155607478
http://osm.org/way/155607480
http://osm.org/way/155607487
http://osm.org/way/158599975
http://osm.org/way/158600046
http://osm.org/way/158600153
http://osm.org/way/174178470
http://osm.org/way/174178770
http://osm.org/way/194742730
http://osm.org/way/194742731
http://osm.org/way/220908292



On a sidenote, here are some stats about our refs:
2369 ways are tagged with xx.1234 (with a dot)
1079 ways are tagged with xx 1234, xx. 1234 (with a space)

Best Regards,
Johnny Carlsen

Re: Strange ref on a few roads

Not sure about the first group, but I suspect typos are more likely. The second group contain what should indeed be in the name tag, although it's probably worth noting that we don't really have a standard for how to use the name and alt_name (and possibly official_name) tags.

The last group are local road refs. Their registration is documented here, but their use is mostly administrative and they don't appear on signs. I could add a mention in the Wiki.

Hi Johnny / Paul,
I just posted some pics of the new signs, with a few questions about the numbers (see todays post "New road number format"
But I guess Pauls post above begs the question does    1-1001   replace   XX.4001,
or supplement it ?
