What Pierre-André has suggested though, seems to be different to "name" in
that rather than having name:local contain the name, what he's actually
suggesting is that the value of name:local refers to the local language,
perhaps better named as name:local_lang, so that for Germany there would be,
for example, the following tags...
Many things actually have names in more than one language on the map...
Country names, city names, and in some parts of the world, virtually every
named object have multiple language names...
