NameType: type of named entity

Classification of named entities (token-based, no nesting of entities etc.) The feature applies mainly to the ru-pos/PROPN tag; in multi-word foreign names, adjectives may also have this feature (they preserve the ADJ tag but at the same time they would not exist in Russian otherwise than in the named entity).
