1.) Name to show on the map (Exit 24)
2.) Name to display for directions (Exit 24: Schwarzenegger Rd)
3.) Name to show on traffic reports (I-310 S Exit 24)
A ramp is not the best example since the name to show on the map is hidden, but the other two cases are still very true.

The number could then be displayed on its own shield in the direction field, eliminating the need for "Exit" in the field (though it would still be read aloud), thereby allowing more space for control cities or street names.

I think not. Today I saw a hazard popup for ", Columbus". It was on a ramp, but went away too fast for me to notice which one.
