You are not *really* advocating that when passign an Italian restaurant
called "O sole mio" I am expected to tag this with name:it and not give
it a proper name tag, are you? Because then I'll promptly point you to a
series of places that have a name the language of which is not
discernible...

Yes. The unified system goes as follows:

"If the default language of the smallest admin boundary enclosing your
feature is xx, treat any name tag you encounter as if it was a name:xx tag."

Bye
