We as contributors might think that is the most prominent way to view the data but not all renderers are the same. Having our data be specific in saying this is the French name, this is the Flemish name and this is the German name gives the data more flexibility than just having all languages thrown into one name=* field.



nobody questions the usefulness of name:language tags, the question is only what, if anything, to put in the name tag in multilingual areas (and also this is a term which can describe a lot of different realities, which not necessarily have to be treated all the same).
