We do? Can you point to any discussion where it says that? Personally I'd vote 
against using the name tag at all for boundaries. There's just no use in it 
since you can find out what it is by just looking at all the relations it's 
part of.

Furthermore, how do you handle mulitlingual borders, because now you just seem 
to ignore it, and as you may know, the division character between two 
languages is a simple "-" dash character, so you may want to decide something 
different than a long dash (A - B — C - D)?

Anyway, if you're planning some big automated edit, I'd expect at least some 
form of notification on our own Belgian mailing list.
