I understand your objections and partially agree with them. However, the boundary=admin tag is special in the sense that it is pretty meaningless without the admin_level. I don't know of any other principal tag in OSM that has that problem and I sure as hell wouldn't endorse any further exceptions. 'Administrative Boundary' causes a lot of confusion with people complaining that their county/city/town/etc. is no longer being found and I kind of hope that a more specific keyword helps with that. admin_level actually works pretty well from country to city level, beyond that it is indeed kind of meaningless. But so are place nodes. This pull request is not meant to be the final word on this issue, it is just the least intrusive interim solution I could come up with.
