When a country has two or more used languages, I could think of having
layer that chooses the first available name-tag, but if it's only a
personal preference, we need to find another way. This is also true for
the next case.
A harder problem is that for some uses, users might

wms service. It's just not possible to list all possible combinations on
the server, so they need to be

be a real killer service.
