one of the major issue for "official" multilingual name in one tag is 
that it doesn't exist a common schema.
in osm, the common separator is ; and therefore 
name="name_lang1;name_lang2" is imho the better choice.
Belgium use "name_lang1 - name_lang2"
Switzerland use "name_lang1 / name_lang2"

maybe a good first step should be that all tools are able to use those 3 
séparator and after local community can move to a common schema.
