Node on the way, highway=stop, stop_direction=X, where X is the
compass heading? It'll survive changing the direction of the way,
though it might be off by a few degrees if the direction of the way is
changed (but probably only a few degrees, not likely by 180 degrees).

No, not likely to be useful for routing, but in addition to your list,
along with a compass heading it would probably make a good addition to
a map when closely zoomed in. The compass heading could be used to
orient the octogon and its text.
