It would need to be a pretty significant ridge to earn a place in
the OSM data, in my mind. Elevation and contours belong in other
datasets, like DEMs, etc, where they can be merged later with OSM
De-noding is important. Labelling might be more of an issue for
render-time, depending on what you mean. What's your goal? Add the
named ridges to the map?
 Niagara Falls, as a cliff (a kind of a ridge :-) ).
