Places with name= but also noname=yes

I found around 20.000 places that have both tags set. Spot checks show usually noname=yes was set first, then later a mapper added a name. Those are mutually exclusive, or is my understanding wrong? Can I add an editor definiton somewhere to it gets marked by validators automatically?

Tag:noname=yes - OpenStreetMap Wiki suggests mappers added noname=yes to avoid a warning “silences validator complaint (presented as a pink outline) about a missing name” while in reality the place often had a name, it was just unknown.
