Yes, that is odd.

Actually, we're almost there in that my recent "exit road names" patch
does attach all POIs with "highway" tags to the respective ways and so
it just needs some code very much like the bollard handling code to
frig the road speed (or whatever is deemed appropriate for the tag) to
be added.

I will look at that this week.
