From reading the wiki 
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/capital) it seems as 
though this type of tagging of capitals with admin_level as an additional tag 
to represent what type of capital it is, has been proposed and has received 
some support in the community.  

While imports is not the place to discuss the merits of this tagging scheme 
over others, I do see this as valuable information.  It is clear that it 
currently does not match with rendering and has become obvious because of this 
import.  I think the best solution is to identify the best way to tag 
capitals/administrative centers and then how to render them.
