Village names may be long, and sometimes rather dense on low zoom levels. Town names consisting of multiple words are usually shown on multiple lines; village names, instead, are always shown on a single line: this increases the probability of clashes between them, and makes the position of the village less clear. I would therefore suggest that they get broken into multiple lines as well.
