No one answered this?

RDA 9.19.1.2.4 says: 

Saint  
Add the term Saint (see 9.6.1.4) to the preferred name unless the access point represents a pope or an emperor, empress, king, or queen. Add the term after a fuller form of name (see 9.19.1.4) and title of nobility (see 9.19.1.2.2) or title of religious rank (see 9.19.1.2.3), as applicable.

So I believe the answer is yes, the NAR should be changed, and changed by adding "Saint" to the 100. The new AAP would be:

Romero, Óscar A. $q (Óscar Arnulfo), $c Saint, $d 1917-1980

His Wikipedia page has a link to the Guardian with the story of his canonization: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/oct/11/salvadoran-priest-oscar-romero-saint-pope-francis-canonisation

You could use that in a 670 to justify the change.
