Maybe I am missing something here, but to my mind road and place naming
is pretty clear cut. See:-
"Guidelines for the determination of place names" a fact sheet by the
Geographic Names Board of NSW
"6.7 Principles of Road naming" page 97 of the NSW Addressing User Manual
Although these relate to NSW, I imagine there are similar arrangements
in all states and territories.
If OSM uses anything different it will only cause difficulties. I guess
that, as with all standards, there will be exceptions.
But OSM should then go with whatever the legal name is.
