Actually I did not redefine the name tag. Name, according to the wiki, is
"To provide details of the name for a feature included in OpenStreetMap.".
Clearly this refers to the feature that has the tag attached to it, i.e. in
this case the cave entrance. I only repeated this on the cave entrance page
for the avoidance of doubt.
