This is IMHO a hint where we could improve the rendering to overcome
this situation, as it is clearly tagging for the renderers. I guess
the editor who made this edit in Version 31 (before it was consistent)
added the comment: "tripoli. International together with arabic name,
like all other places ." so I'd assume good will.
