But I'm unclear on (1) where the "master" should be and which others should be references, and (2) of the references, which should be links and which transclusions.
At first glance the "master" might belong in Road names/USA. However the concept of not making up names for roads seems broader than just the US. Should the naming principles be placed "higher" in the wiki tree, or...?

We need to address this for:
Pages that need to get some linkage on these no-name segments:
- Parking Lot Roads
- At Grade Connectors (that are not ramps)
- And some non-ramp segments that will pick up the next segment name as is done with wayfinders

Anecdotally, a lot of people are complaining about the update, and I know a bunch of people IRL who have not updated from 3.7.x. It is also well known in the app world that there is a fairly long update cycle before you can retire support for older versions.

Sure we agreed naming the segments entering and exiting the parking lot is a problem. But we all know not naming the segments the segments entering and exiting the parking lot is problem as well. Even after that thread, had I come across the Bollinger Crossing example locally, I would have named the road. Its on the green road sign. How am I supposed to determine that that is the name of the shopping center and not the name of the road?
