[Tagging] Country names

Looking at very high zoom levels on Mapnik, I noticed that the East
Asian countries (Japan, China, etc) have their names written in native
script with the English name in parentheses, but a lot of other
countries (e.g. all the ones with Arabic characters) don't seem to
follow this.

Why the inconsistency?  Either way makes sense, but shouldn't we pick
one and stick with it?
