I would leave it up to the consumer to decide. Personally I would say
it depends on the tag. For the name tag I would asume that the way is
more probably correct then the relation, because relations are usually
made for ways with the same ref, while the name might change along the
road and I would asume that who made the relation maybe overlooked the
differing name.

I don't think there should be an "agreed decision" how to interpret
contradicting mapping.

das war perfektes Deutsch, kein Grund sich zu entschuldigen. (no need
to apologize, it was perfectly correct German) :-)
