exit_to is a recently (June 2010) introduced tag for motorway_junctions 
and I didn't know it. I'm afraid most people have tagged 
motorway_junction name with what now is intended to go in exit_to tag, 
so there will be some confusion on it for some time.
Anyway, my question is still valid, now for exit_to tag.
