I-5: make StoDr visible

My problem is that StoDr only has an on-ramp to NB I-5, but no exit from either direction of I-5. Caltrans accordingly has not posted or assigned an exit number. StoDr would be weird on a long all-freeway route where every waypoint label between the Mexico and Oregon borders is an exit number-based interchange number.

A shaping point is needed somewhere in the vicinity of StoDr, so I can't just remove the point. It also doesn't seem part of the CA 1 interchange (waypoint 79) or any other.

More to follow as I recover from my vacation.

What's wrong with a named point for an interchange with no number? We do the same on I-10 in Florida, where you can turn around at a rest area.

I don't think that we should omit the wp for that reason. If you don't like StoDr, you could also call it 79A or 80. There is precedence in other regions.

Based on what rickmastfan67 did with I-4 and mapmikey did previously with I-495, I would go with StoDr.  I will note that I did not check to see if it was in the footprint of another interchange in which the one point per interchange rule may apply.

Based on what rickmastfan67 did with I-4

Only did it that way because of it being for the 'future' I-4 Express lanes (and what signage posted ATM lists no number), but was partially opened as a detour route for 75B ramps that were being re-configured.  Plus it will be a 'full' interchange with a road that's completely separate from 75B.
