On http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dmotorway_junction you
can find the following description on the exit_to tag.
'exit_to<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:exit_to>
=* should be used to detail the destinations where the junction exits
to—for example, if signage states a road leads to Anytown on the A1000…
exit_to <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:exit_to>=Anytown
A1000<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Tag:exit_to%3DAnytown_A1000&action=edit&redlink=1>;
if multiple destinations are shown on signage, tag them with semicolons:
for example, exit_to <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:exit_to>=Anytown
A1000; Elsewhere A1001;
Anyvillage<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Tag:exit_to%3DAnytown_A1000;_Elsewhere_A1001;_Anyvillage&action=edit&redlink=1>;
note that Anyvillage doesn't have a ref number'

Unfortunately, exit_to is not documented. The destination in my opinion has
same purpose as exit_to, but is a better choice because you can use it on
both outgoing parts of the Y-branch and because you can use in in
conjunction with destination:lanes. Some questions on this:

1. Have you ever used exit_to?
2. Have you ever used destination?
3. are you willing to document exit_to?
4. is it clear for you when to use exit_to and when to use destination?
5. do you have any problems (and if so: which ones) when the exit_to
description is removed from the wiki?

I'm looking forward to your answers

Cheers, Johan.
