Feel free to dive in and add a specific example that you know is good.
Or if you prefer, post it here and I'll add it.
Something like M4 (W) J4B to M25 (N) - does it need to be spelt out that the ramp differs from the carriageway?

As this junction is a shared slip road for M25 CW & ACW I'd expect is to be "M4 (W) J4B to M25" and where this splits to go to the relevant direction it would change to "Entry to M25 (N) J15" or "Entry to M25 (S) J15"
That's how I'd do it anyway.
I've amended the wiki to reflect this and also added some clarification text.
I'm also wondering if the case for not adding direction to an onward road (where we have no choice) is valid. I expect there motorway interchanges with dedicated lanes for different onward directions (though I can't think of an example).
Feel free to discuss these special case major junctions!
Is this ok for M4/M25?

Personally, I find the current naming of ramps to be ugly and confusing, but I guess this could just be me. When I'm driving along a motorway and see that the next ramp is named "M8 (E) J15 Exit", the only useful bit of information is "J15", and the rest of it is redundant [for navigation]. The junction numbers on motorway signs are typically tiny compared to the rest of the information (unlike in the US). Therefore, seeing which secondary road the junction is for would be helpful.
Perhaps neither scheme is perfect, but I think mine is better
