Interstate exit signs are carefully chosen for clarity - using only the
immediately-connected road in exit_to can result in a situation such Tulsa,
OK where Skelly Drive parallels I44, and there would be many exits with an
immediate link to Skelly Drive:
totally confusing someone who uses that information.
Sign relations are less ambiguous, but there is no editor assistance. In
many cases, a destination city on a sign will be hundreds of KM distant,
which again complicates trying to locate the object to add to the sign
