just to clarify, place tags should IMHO not go on administrative polygons
if they do not coincide perfectly with the geographic extension of the
settlement (usually only true for sub-areas like neighbourhoods, or in very
densely built-up areas where the end of one settlement is the start of the
next). Place tags should not go on areas outside of settlements (areas that
are not built-up) but could encompass non-built-up areas in the inside of
settlements (e.g. recreational areas, parks, brownfields etc.).
