I thought the issue was that there are two distinct concepts:

  boundaries, where there is some legal distinction and a precise edge

  place names, which have more or less indistinct boundaries.

In my area, towns have boundaries, and there are village centers that
have names like "West Acton" which have as far as I know no actual
boundaries and no legal standing.
