You will not find "name:ar" in the streets of Paris, but in the other hand will find "name:ar", "name:fr" and "name:en" in Lebanon's streets!

So it's better to let the user choose which language he want to be in the generated index.

It would be nice to be able to support the different names of a street (name,
alt_name, name:fr, name:br, ...), for example to render a map with names from
a selected language.

Brian Quinion explained how this is done in Gazetteer:

Web interface question: should we allow all languages for a country (e.g.
Arabic for Paris and not only French)? Or display all different names in the
index only?
