short_name used instead of name for results in languages without translated name

Search result for places which has short_name set using accept-language which is missing an explicit translation will give you the short_name instead of name.

Example: New York City displayed with accept-language=sv will have NYC as first component of display_name and as city in address details. I expect it to be New York City.
