If a waypoint has "empty" icon, its name will not be shown on chart. Sometimes it is useful to put just a name on the chart with no icon - I use "Blue Track" for his now, but it is not a proper way.
This task depends upon

Actually, I think you HAVE found the solution, proper or not! You could also make your own very very small xpm icon and include it in your own usericons folder.

It seems to me that at least with the latest code it works as suggested - "empty" icon + "Show name on chart" checked results in just the name being shown. But there's a glitch preventing the "empty" symbol to be persisted in navobjects.xml - fixed in https://github.com/nohal/OpenCPN/commit/64bee37638c1143e3e7a992bf0776467b1bd9787
