If the owner calls in a fire at his house, he's going to use his own wrong
for the road. So you'd probably be best to have it as a loc_name, then
a chance of somebody other than you finding it.
OTOH, if you want to make sure mappers know it's not the name of the road
what that guy says, then not:name=*.
Having it as both a loc_name and a not:name feels wrong, but a loc_name
with a note
saying only one guy on the entire planet calls it that would work.
