Admittedly yes, but then the project's main language is English, so I
don't see anything from with favoring English as main "international"
language. Hey, it's just about what we render in our default renderer.
Others are free to render names in other languages if they prefer.
But I agree, that we shouldn't try to render too many variations for one
entity. name and name_loc would IMHO suffice.
I am not a native english speaker BTW.
