Possible to choose name rendering?

In the article it suggests that names in OSM are given both as local names and as en:names (or presumably other languages too). It says that mapnik and osma always use the local name. My question is, is it possible to specify a renderer to use just the en:names? There are many alphabets I can't read, and it's difficult even to locate major cities which are well known in their latinized forms. Is it possible to at least specify the local name with the latinized version in brackets, or is this planned for some future version of the renderers? Eric2 17:02, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
