[Tagging] Is information board title also its name?

See for example https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:Iglesia_San_Pedro_Nolasco_de_los_Molinos_01.jpg

name=Iglesia San Pedro Nolasco de los Molinos
a valid tagging in this case?

Or is it an incorrect tagging for the renderer?

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:board:title and 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:information%3Dboard claim otherwiseand describe board:title as proper tagging.

I think that such boards can be described as being named, with title
being their name.

Is it OK? Or is it undesirable tagging that should be stopped?

For reference, such tagging is supported by default renderer
and is widely used https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/information=board#combinations
(though still may be considered as widespread wrong tagging I guess)
