Status: de facto

An official name in English language. Note that it is only rarely useful:

  • If object is in place where this language dominates and official names in other languages are not specified, then simply official_name=* is sufficient
  • If official name and common name match, then usually name=* or name:en=* is enough. Though if official name is unusual then it can be used.
