Hello Canadian mappers!

The node and relation for Nunavut are http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/305700700 and http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/390840 . The "name" of both of these is currently set to a composite of the Inuktitut and the Anglo/French name. Is this OK?

Different OSM communities have adopted different standards - most have gone the "most widely used" form in the "name" tag (e.g. in places in Wales will tend to have a "name" that matches name:cy in mostly Welsh-speaking areas and name:en in mostly English-speaking ones). In some places (e.g. Londonderry/Derry, and around Brussels) a composite of multiple languages is in use; in still others (e.g. India) a "neutral" language is used (there, English).

I did suggest on http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/41676348 that the person who changed the name raise it here; that didn't happen, so I'm mentioning it :)

Best Regards,

Andy Townsend
