[HOT] Quick question on village mapping

Hi all,

If you are adding field data to an existing shape (landuse=residential),
would you tag the shape as place=village / name=whatever or would you add a
node and tag the node.

I've generally done the latter, but am seeing quite a few villages in Chad
that conform to the former.

Is there a best practice here?
