The map ignores these network relations and, personally speaking,
I don't like them very much. But some people insist that they need
them to be able to pull all routes at once from the database. So,
I'd say, adding your new relation is optional.

Yes, that would be a good idea. We discussed something similar
on the IRC yesterday and so far, everybody seems to like
national/regional/local as a value.

At the moment the map recognizes ncn/rcn/lcn because it's what the
Wiki says at the moment. But if somebody would write a short mail
to the tagging mailinglist and change the wiki, I'll happily fix
the map.
