Cool,
So i am leaning towards stating the 1st name listed in the NRN set as
the 'name=*' tag, then having 'alt_name=*' ... was that what you were
planing?

Looking at the map of Quebec

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=46.7921&lon=-71.2299&zoom=12&layers=B000FTTT
I see that roads are tagged with the native language of name=* so the
addition of name:en=* would be needed.

maybe the tag 'alt_name1:en=*'?

An idea,
Cheers,
Sam
