usefulness

This key can is not necessary as there are many who already use note=FIXME + comment, in this case I would use note="FIXME add location name". If a noname key is to be used, than I suggest it to be used on locations that don't have or need a name-placer, or where the name of a location don't need to be rendered. --Skippern 22:59, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

noname is more useful for partially-automated tasks than notes, which are designed primarily for the benefit of manual editing. Also, you seem to have the purpose reversed; locations with names that are not yet recorded in OSM are explicitly not noname=yes (with a stretch of imagination I suppose they might be noname=no, but at that point why not just survey the name?).
