> I would depreciate int_name there is no such thing like a (single) international name, it is just another way of saying English or English transliteration.

Not necessary, on some subjects the international name is French. But we can skip it as in most usage it's currently BS, Top usage for thousands of [Aparato Individual de Bombeo](https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/int_name#values).
And no, Individual Pumping Device is not an international name but a description. BTW I just commented one changeset ;-).

> I would also question 

Me too, but it's just an example, I used Overpass to find an example in Germany with just `name` and `name:en`, without (IMHO useless) `name:de`.

I do question the usage of `name:de` in Germany as the default language in Germany is German. With some possible exceptions like a bilingual name as name but split for instance in `name:de` and `name:gsw`.

Martin, the international name or the English name of Dieter? ;-)
