They probably should be secondary, as that conveys the right impression. On the other hand, some apparently non-local user has messed up tagging of Route 2 near Boston/Cambridge (from alewife to the science museum) and made them trunk when they obviously aren't (to anyone who has been on them - no limited access, constant at-grade intersections, frequent lights), so maybe you could look into and fix that too :-) http://osm.org/go/ZfI4nILQ-
