I have been looking at the continent data and "australia" looks wrong to be the alternative name for Oceania (

Australia (continent) only comprises of Australia the country plus part of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea and it is just like a subset of Oceania.

Is there a way to remove that alt name entry from the Oceania feature in Geonames?
