I have a question about system names:

marn - Morocco N Roads

The official languages in Morocco are Arabic and Berber.
The Arabian system name would be "Morocco الطريق الوطنية" and I thought French is an official language too, and the name should be "Morocco Routes Nationales". But I've just realized that it is not an official language according to wikipedia. So I think "Morocco National Roads" is really the right name. English because the official language does not use Latin alphabet. Am I right?

What's about countries where French is really the official language, like Togo or Gabon? Should it be French or do we wanna use English all over Africa?

btw: panda80 announced to start drafting marn. Should be noted in the list.

Transliteration, rather than that IIRC.

I've used place holder names for some systems.
