[Tagging] designation=* is a mess in Germany

In France, we have a strong misuse of this tag. Some people are using  
it instead of name=*. Maybe due to a lack of translation in Potlatch  
because "désignation" in French is a synonym of name. It is also used  
instead of note=*.

For instance :

building = school
name = Maison de la Petite Enfance
designation = Crèche

indeed, amenity=kindergarten.
