I don't think the bots themselves will antagonize mappers except for
2 possible cases:
1 - A mapper abbreviates an already expanded name, and doesn't like
the style change because name no longer renders in Mapnik at a certain
2 - The edge cases where the abbreviated name is the official name
and cannot be expanded. Would this need a special tag to tell the bot
that the name is correct?
