   Where possible, this will duplicate the sign.  The thinking is that 
sign contents are carefully chosen for maximum clarity to drivers, and 
to distinguish them from nearby exits.  That will not necessarily be the 
nearest main road the exit leads to. The Wiki would have the exit node as

exit_to=HI 63 North; Likelike Hwy

   (Exit Only optional also, I suppose)
