Hwy 1 from Santa Cruz to San Francisco is expressway=yes?

I noticed that on the OSM Americana map that Highway 1 between Santa Cruz and Pacifica is shown quite prominently (see screenshot).

This appears to be because it is tagged as “expressway=yes”. This particular stretch is really rural and the road has plenty of driveways and other small roads that intersect along the way. This seems to be in conflict with the wiki for tagging “expressway=yes” which recommends to only use “expressway=yes” on undivided highways when there is “full access control”.

In light of this, would anyone take offense if I went ahead and removed the “expressway=yes” tag from this section of Highway 1?
