I'm not sure when the E roads were put as tier 3 rather than tier 2, though
pretty sure it was a day 1 thing for E roads as E Roads came after some tier 2 freeway systems in Europe had been done.
CHM treated the E roads as US routes on another continent, complete with the red color (which was changed early on after the switch to TM).  It might be that they were assigned tier 3 when tiers were invented; I don't know how old the tier 2 freeway systems are as all my travels are in the US and Canada and CHM was never as transparent about development as TM.

Day 1 in terms to tiers being invented, as E Roads date back to CHM. I wanna say they were green back then too, but less certain.

Not sure if this has been brought-up before, or what it would take to implement here, but I like the concept of user-defined color systems...thinking in particular of what mob-rule does.

I would like this to be part of the control panel idea.  (https://github.com/TravelMapping/Web/issues/351)

I could see this being very flexible, allowing fine-grained control like we have through the hard-to-use query string parameters now, but also convenient to choose from among pre-defined and contributed color schemes.
