At the least, I'd like to move these out of the long-active and otherwise well-documented usany system and into a devel system (usanyb for "bannered"?) where they can live until we decide to dump them or find a way to definitively complete them.

I'd downvote that; I don't like the clutter of creating unnecessary (or questionably necessary) new systems. If these routes are going to be moribund or have an uncertain future or status, let's let them be moribund in usany.

Some others we're missing:
-Truck NY 14 (Elmira): Clemens Center Parkway, Grand Central Avenue, McCanns Boulevard
-Truck NY 17C (Waverly): Broad Street Extension, William Donnelly Indus Parkway (not sure if this one counts; Bing streetside only shows "Truck Route" signs, not "Truck NY 17C" or "Truck Route NY 17C", but I've heard Region 9 refer to it as Truck NY 17C before)
-Truck NY 27 (Brooklyn): 10th Street, McDonald Avenue, Church Avenue
-Truck NY 32 (Glens Falls): Oakland Avenue
-Truck NY 340: William Street, Main Street
To update: I did not see any Truck NY 14 signs in Elmira when I was there, just the generic "truck route" signs.  The designation may have been manufactured by Google.  I also saw many "Alt NY 17" signs still up - in many cases, better signed than NY 427.  The Lowman Crossover also has these signs.

Another update: "Truck NY 17C" has the same story as Truck NY 14.  I did, however, find a Truck NY 96 in Candor along Mill Street and NY 96B.  There are also "Truck To NY 23" signs on NY 12 NB approaching Norwich directing trucks to CR 32B and CR 32; I am unsure if this is something that counts, as I did not see any evidence on NY 12 that this is any different from the "Truck US 9/NY 50 south" situation in Saratoga Springs, but I didn't poke around too much either (downside of finding it at the end of a trip), and there isn't current street view there.

Ones posted with 'TO' text don't count.  Otherwise, we'd have 2 different random 'TO PA-51' truck routes in the Downtown Pittsburgh area, as one is posted on the Parkway North @ the I-279/579 interchange, and there's one posted thru Downtown itself.  All because of the Liberty Bridge.

I'm debating whether it's worth a detour on my next clinching trip to verify that all the signage indeed has TO banners or not.  Right now I'm leaning no, since I saw no additional signage for it (and nothing of any kind on SB NY 12), which one would think there would be if it was actually a truck route of the kind that are included here.
