I would find it strange if a brand:wikidata tag locked the "name" tag,
brand is mainly used for "grouping" of multiple instances (it somehow
defines a category/common property), while name is an individual tag for
Looking up your McD example with overpass turbo, I found 572 objects with
brand=McDonald's and a name different to "McDonald's", out of 841 total
objects according to taginfo.

I like the idea though to connect brand and brand:wikidata, and require an
extra click (or going to "all tags") when your edit makes them inconsistent.
