When I search for a Paris → Lyon path, I come upon this page: https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?engine=graphhopper_car&route=48.857%2C2.351%3B45.758%2C4.832 (or similar with OSRM, hence my supposition it's an issue with the OSM website, but if you think that's an upstream issue, I can take it to OSRM and/or GraphHopper :))

Unfortunately, if you open it, you won't be able to know that I searched for “Paris” and “Lyon”, and you will only have coordinates available.

I recently wanted to show off OSM to friends by sending them a path to a POI I had recently added that isn't in google map, but the absence of this feature makes it harder for me to do this “elegantly”.

Anyway, thank you for the work you make for OSM, that's a wonderful project!
