until now, the int_name was defined as "Internationally known as"

# name=Channel Tunnel - Default name
# int_name=Eurotunnel - Internationally known as

from: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:int_name

therefor I feel that using "Ṭarābulus" instead of "Tripoli" is not
according to the general usage of int_name, because Tripoli is IMHO
not "internationally known as 'Ṭarābulus' " but I might be wrong.
