Isn't there a consensus to have what is written on street plates in the 'name' tag ?

o.k. I think, in french (Switzerland), the capital letters are without
an accent. I will change these names in OSM.
But, now I've found an other Problem:
In Schmitten FR  is a road in GWR named as an short-name: F. X.
The real Name is "Franz Xaver Müllerstrasse". And in OSM it is named
like this. Till now, I thinked, we shouldn't use short names in OSM. I
hope, this is still right.
The problem is: if other users see on the GWR-list some other shorten
streetnames, it will be possible, that they will change the name that it
match to the GWR-list.
