The only correct way to put that into a clean DB model would be to
create a relation that has the name on it *once* and has all pieces as
members to which the name applies, including all pieces of street,
Now that is considered impractical by most people due to the editing
strain (we know how likely people already mess up relations right now).
Also, note that what you propose needs actual change of the current
renderers as they do not at this time ignore the multiple names but
instead make maps look really ugly (well, most separately mapped
sidewalks make the map look ugly in current renderers).
