It seems to me based on this thread that the general consensus is these should be on TM.  The majority of primary routes in Virginia have this posting style in the field - these additional routes happen to have it as their only posting.

Sending them in unless somebody has a convincing reason not to.

How similar are those to NY reference markers?  They seem similar to me, and we wouldn't say a route in NY was signed just because their are reference markers for it.

The Virginia markers are somewhat larger and more visible, and also have only one number on them rather than three on NY reference markers. The latter are more similar to the small number plates in Hawaii.

I'm not yet 100% sold on the Virginia markers, or New Jersey blades with mini-route shields. But if we're going to add anything at all, we should start with those. NY reference markers are farther down the list.

One could also argue that the Virginia markers are trailblazers...they operate in a similar fashion to trailblazer shields, very much unlike NY reference markers.

Yes, looking at those examples, I agree.  I must have been thinking of the Hawaii squares.
