Both already exist, Leeds is here
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/358309 and Manchester is here

Both have the now obligatory collection of Russian and other names,
which are just phonetics and not names used, there has been some
discussion and has made me think not really valid. I think the only
non-English name that is really valid here is the welsh name for

Leeds, however it is in the middle of a pedestrianised area, so makes
routing results at best unhelpful as it directs you to a dead end side
street. Would be better on a main road from which the central car parks
are accessible.
