The Wrexham and Ruabon PlusBus zone has been imported without any 
reference to Wrexham (the more important location):
name = Ruabon
public_transport = pay_scale_area
ref = RUABON
source = naptan_import

While this presumably corresponds to an entry in somebody's database, 
it causes a bit of FUD in OSM. Presumably I could edit the name tag, 
in spite of the admonition above. But name tags are rendered by Mapnik 
at high zooms (here as a disembodied name 16km from Ruabon). For these 
areas, it would be better to remove the name tag and use note instead, 
e.g. note = Wrexham and Ruabon PlusBus area.
