Yes, that would be good in some ways. Not so good in other ways. It
would be a hassle for travelers who are not sufficiently fluent in the
local language to read the local place names in their specific script.
It also doesn't help the multiple official languages case, though you
could cure that by putting multiple entries, one per language.
Yes, exactly. Have one synonym for each local name. Just require that
the English choice always exists.
