No, I pretty much agree with everying in your post. I too find that many institutions i) take a lot of liberties with the translation, and ii) don't make clear when they do so.
I mean, for example, I can understand an institution interpolating 'Palace' in "The Battle at Yamaki [Palace] in Izu Province" (since things that would be obvious to Japanese readers might not be so obvious to Westerners), but there is no excuse for not flagging the interplation with the ''!
