Imho it us the opposite : name should be added only if it us not the same as brand
But some render doesn't use brand, this need to fix to avoid loosing data on the map

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.
