Because I would like to see the elevation in the label - at least in 
higher zoomlevels.

Basically the same behaviour as natural=peak would be my favourite.

Well, tagging every unpopulated named place with place=locality is 
really misleading. A football stadium is usually unpopulated and has a 
name :-)

If we have a specific tag for a specific feature we shouldn't add more 
generic stuff to it IMHO. Makes it more difficult to render without a 
real benefit.
