what is already there is mostly in the natural namespace or sometimes tagged as place=locality (mostly on nodes). Our data model (scale, db) is not suited very well for topographic areas (there are usually more low scale). A better solution would IMHO be to have multilingual shape files for this kind of data and mix them at render time
