In Germany we still say Peking, and I have no problem with Americans calling our cities Munich, Nuremberg, Dusseldorf, Cologne or Brunswick so you shouldn't have with foreign names either.

Experience shows that China has a liberal view towards people driving without a license

Chinese roads are very dangerous. Nothing wrong with the infrastructure, it's the drivers. Most act like crazy race car drivers, with total disregard for safety. Foreigners eager to test China's roads will probably think twice after their first taxi ride from the airport.
