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

Hi Simon,

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 [1] 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.
