Is "the same geographical area" relevant ? Why should a data consumer
use a separate datebase to identify the brand of an item ?
Suppose I want to find all "Wendy's". Why do I need to know that the
one in The Netherlands does not belong to the brand found in the US ?
 Shouldn't this be part of the OSM data in some way ?
