Linking roads should (generally speaking) never have names, an update to
the ID editor now displays Destination instead of name for input. My
suggestion would be to change the Offramp prefixes to:

destination= The places mentioned on the exit sign

destination:street= The road name that is at the end

destination:ref= The road ref that is at the end

destination:network= Only if destination road has a network tag.

This is what I've been doing, What does everyone think?
