My origins are the Isle of Man and Manx is an even less used language
than Welsh but is being added back to signs! I'm up in North Wales next
week ... and make regular trips down the M50 and on into South Wales ...

The whole point is that political disputes arise world wise, so the
simple rule is 'map what you see' ... with regards 'Queens Square' I see
from Google that there MAY have been a bus terminus at some point in
time, but that no longer exists? I would presume that the slip road in
front of the town hall was the actual location, but that 'Queen's
Square' consists off the green areas and possibly the forecourt of the
town hall. THAT is not easy to decide by observation, but the Road tags
do not need to be changed, just the footpaths and park area added and
tagged ... local knowledge is required to interpret the signs ... at the
very least the slip road needs adding on OSM.
