The people who live on the island call it Taiwan.  What's wrong with using
the name they choose?

Nothing. I consider it most appropriate if we use the name for any
country in the way the people itself prefer to call it (except of
course, if the name would be non-unique).

so you're going to call germany deutschland? etc. that could make the list of countries quite incomprehensible for general public (different alphabets and all that).
