Sure, that's why I suggested common_language=* (common_language=xx +
name:xx=* is just like saying "name=* is in xx").
Could you explain this problem using some examples?

That's interesting case. How do we tag the borders for such areas?
If countries/regions with known official_language=* are overlapping, the
language would be known for both and you have to choose one or show both
(the same as official_language=xx;yy).
Another solution would be to use some special values, like "none" or
"disputed" for this area (unfortunately "no" is a code for Norwegian
