There's logic in the style that has been forked to handle those:
There's obviously a discussion to be had about which ones and at what
zoom level, but the capability is there.

That's something that I'd thought about (entirely separately to this
project). The tricky bit with overlays is that you won't get any
collision avoidance between layers, and as route names tend to be quite
long that's likely to be an issue. You might be able to get away with a
large enough "halo" around the route text - the best way to find out is
to try it and see.
