[roads] Mountain paths ref or name are not rendered.

Mountains paths for hiking/cycling are rendered without ref or name. Normally a path has an official ref, like 401, and then it could have a common name, like 'Alpine summer walk'. In some specialized maps like opencyclemap or or only the name is rendered.

I think that, at the appropriate zoom level, the ref should always be rendered, like in all tourism maps, to uniquely identify the path, and in the small number of cases where the name is defined it should be rendered together. In case of space issues the ref seems more important/informative than the name.

This issue prevents the use of osm for tourism hiking/cycling which is a usecase where it could shine.
