> Example One:
> - "place=suburb" node central to neighborhood:  http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/1168219909

is the approximative way to place a label and is rendered by mapnik

> - Boundary relation with the the "place" node marked as a label: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1438874; included the place attributes on the boundary as well.  Not sure if required.

is IMHO the "correct" way to do it, but is not recognized by Mapnik.

> Zooming in once more reveals TWO labels for the area:

This is an result of Mapnik rendering the node as a label and
rendering the name of _any_ area at high zoom levels. It doesn't
recognize the boundary relation, but it renders all polygons and
therefor _also_ the boundary relations.
