[Talk-GB] OSM Analysis updated with May 2014 OS Locator data

I'd go for not:name, because the abbreviation is not the real name and it is the convention established soon after the OS Opendata was released.

Where OS suddenly get these strange names from seems odd to me. It's almost as though they want their Opendata to be hard to use.

cheers, Chris
