This applies e.g. for place=state or place=city.
On the other hand, for place=town or place=country, the names are split in 2 lines.

The effect of state names not being split can be seen e.g. here:
State names in Poland, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine tend to be very long and overlap into the neighbouring states.

The effect of City names not being split becomes most obvious in countries with a 2-language tradition (e.g. Japan), where cities are named "Local_name (internat.Name)". This can become quite long and interfere with neighbouring cities more than necessary.

Thanks for the great work you're doing, openstreetmap-carto!
