[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] look for extra place tags in Nominatim search results (#1297)

Administrative boundaries at municipality level are generally
better described by the place node (as town, village etc.).
Nominatim exports the place tyupe in extratags if it was able
to merge place nodes with admin boundaries. Use this preferably
to create the descriptive term.

Example: http://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=balzers
will be described as 'village' instead of 'city boundary'.
