Admin1 preferred names in Estonia  XML

Currently the admin1 divisions of Estonia have 2 different styles of primary names: Harjumaa and Saaremaa are listed as Harju and Saare (without the "maa" suffix that means "land"), whereas all other counties are listed with the suffix (e.g. Hiiumaa, Valgamaa).

See the name attribute in:

It seems this comes from the English preferred alternate name.

I created alternate names for Harjumaa and Saaremaa to match the style of others, but I cannot make them preferred (getting "you are not allowed to update this alt name" error when removing the preferred flag from the wrong entry).

Can you fix this?
