I tend to agree with Bryce. Quite often in the UK there are 
disagreements where suburbs/neighbourhoods boundaries occur.
There's also boundary creep when residents can address their property as 
being in an adjacent area when it's perceived to be a bit posher.

I wish to reiterate that a polygon tagged as place/boundary should not 
be sub-tagged as landuse=residential.

Glad to see we're using the British spelling of neighbourhood. Some 
mappers state-side appear not to like the use of the letter U.
