Another solution is to always put category name into "name" field. "Paris"
would become "City of Paris" or "Paris city".
And the renderers will need to decide how to cut the category word from
some names in order not to display then on the map or another ready-to-use
tag will need to be inroduce which would contain just "Paris" in it.
