I assume you're referring to 
<http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/61863741>. This node should not be 
tagged highway=motorway_junction, because the motorway_link in this case 
is an on-ramp (motorway entrance). highway=motorway_junction is only 
used at the beginning of an off-ramp (exit) -- that is, a link way that 
leads away from the motorway.

However, it is a good idea to add destination and destination:ref tags 
based on any signage you see near the beginning of this ramp. Navigation 
software needs these tags to be used with on-ramps and off-ramps alike.
