This in OSM is always the local observer.

What you might be after is that not every mappable feature in OSM that 
is occasionally referred to with a verbal identifier has a verifiable 
name according to OSM's verifiability principle.  There you are 
correct.  But human use of names has the tendency to converge to a 
uniform name in many cases so if there are verbal identifiers used 
there is also often a verifiable name.
