It is not handling
- regions with more than one widespread language
- features that have name tag in an atypical language

>> maps.me <http://maps.me>>>  took approach similar to Nominatim's: each map region has "default language" in metadata, and in case the name:<default_language_here> is needed but is missing, just name tag is taken.

If a region of a country has two official languages and the labels are, for example, Rovinj/Rovigno, then put a official_language=hr/it. And on the safe side, tag all the other subregions with official_language=hr, if the data renderer chooses to download only one region.
