[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Include POI names in routing URL (#1910)

Hmm… I can confirm that the converting-back-to-POI-name works on project-osrm.org (eg. [there](http://map.project-osrm.org/?z=10&center=45.645368%2C4.747982&loc=48.856610%2C2.351499&loc=45.757814%2C4.832011&hl=en&alt=0)), but it doesn't work on the main openstreetmap.org website. It would already be half-solving this issue, indeed :)

Also, maybe having an option to have a longer link with the full information could help? Actually, honestly I personally don't care much about the length of addresses in most situations (ie. except when pasting URLs on IRC, where they could be broken). This is thus from my point of view something that is not at feature-parity with google maps (which turns out to have… quite lengthy URLs).

That said, having a choice would likely be best, indeed :) but in most cases when I share a URL I expect people to have the same information as I do, even though I know this is less and less true in today's web.
