I am generally opposing german language values in formalized tags *),
especially where a generic fact is expressed that has a corresponding word
in English like here. For this reason I am opposing that you normalize
those tags as it would distort the actual tagging numbers and next time
you'd be able to say that there are even more of these values, all unified
in the same clean format ;-)


*) the basis for our tagging are English tags, worldwide, so that people
can use the data easier, if we started to use localized tags in hundreds of
languages OSM would soon become almost useless or at least the effort of
producing even a simple map would become huge.
