[Tagging] brand=* necessary?

While I was filling up this list
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Brands> on the wiki with information,
someone on the talk page asked why I was adding brand=* to every object.
His argument was that the brand tag is a duplicate of the name tag in most
cases and I should only add it if the name differs. (see example
<https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/3462662558>) I kind of see his point,
but what do you think? Should we only add a brand tag if it differs from
the name?

I thought adding brand= to all 'branded' objects would be helpful because
it goes hand in hand with brand:wikidata= which I would add to all of them.
