The purpose of the default rendering is to give feedback to mappers. Preferably local mappers, so having the map rendered in local languages shouldn't be a problem.
If you want to use OSM data as a tourist use OsmAND or MAPS.ME and set a language of your choice. If other projects need tiles for their own purposes/user base, they should render them to their liking and make them available.
