Key official_name

I knew that official_name was invented for long official country names and my question about the diff with "name" was a false naive question. The problem is the wiki. We don't need a wiki if it is just a list of undocumented values. We can use tagwatch or osmdoc for that. --Pieren 11:47, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

I know the key has been created for official country names. But now it is extended to other things. I'm not against the key. I'm against poor documentation. If you are able to provide a clear distinction between "name", "int_name" and "official name", go ahead. I removed it because at the moment, it's creating more confusion than solving issues. --Pieren 12:55, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
I reintroduced the tag official_name in the name page for its original usage. And created a section in the discussion page about its possible extension for other things. Please add your arguments there. --Pieren 13:51, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
