[Tagging] name with name:en

I'd suggest leaving it alone. How do you know what language name=* is? How
do you know that it is acceptable to display name=* when language "en" is
requested? They may look identical, but if I request name:en then I'd like
to see name:en if it's present.

This problem comes up time and again, and it's not helpful to delete data
just for the sake of it. Database "bloat" is a canard.
