there is a subtle difference, in that it is very common in OSM to trace
from aerial imagery without any survey, and in these cases you obviously
won't be able to enter names. Therefor streets without names in OSM but
with names in the real world are quite common (at least for the moment). On
the other hand an explicit noname=yes is an affirmation that the mapper
really couldn't find a name, even by looking hard for it.

cheers,
Martin
