   I'd say the opposite; the stop name is very useful to anyone using 
the "Public Transport" JOSM plugin to check and organize stops so that 
stops can be recognized, rather than just working with a column of 
anonymous stops.  It also assists riders following a printed set of 
directions.    The name doesn't currently render on Mapnik or Osmarender.

   The only caution to assigning a name is that GTFS discourages making 
up names for stops that haven't been given formal names.
