Yolngu street names on Elcho Island in English orthography only?

Here is a nice piece from ABC news about a recent dispute over which orthography to be used on street signs on Elcho Island. The local Place Names Committee ruled that street signs must be in English orthography, but the community printed them in Yolngu orthography anyway. Good on them!
