Japanese hosta names

I should not give comments on the newly registrated plants despite 
its ""pecularities"" and contradictions as I tried earlier and got the 
whole gang over me but.....
I  noted that several Hosta were registered with their japanese 
names. I strongly recommend that the original name is kept in any 
language. Giving and even replacing it with an  english translation 
creates a lot of confusion. like H montana On Stage and H. 
montana Choko Nishiki. However I noted that several of the newly 
registered japanese names have the japanese name for the 
species attached, yet at the same time parentage is given as 
unknown. Lets take an example:
Ogon Tachi: Ogon means golden ( sorry yellow) Tachi means 
rectifolia. So one of two: or it is indeed a rectifolia and should be 
named as such including a proper cv name e.g H. rectifolia 
""Straight yellow"" or it is (possibly) a hybrid and then the japanese 
name for rectifolia= tachi should not be used and it could be "" 
Straight Yellow'' ( just a suggestion to make clear my argument)
