So the order to set the labels might be:

The first four of the tags that are set are used.

I think the following behaviour makes sense:
If mkgmap:name is not set then the name tag is used?
The name action adds the mkgmap:name tag instead of settings the name in 
the java element?

I wonder if it is easier for style devs to set one mkgmap:addname 
separated with ";" instead of setting mkgmap:name:1..n?
