There are suburb boundaries gazetted for most of Australia, the
exception being unincorporated areas, and these do touch each other
just as postcode boundaries do. You also have parish and local
government boundaries (not unnecessarily shires, can be county
councils), so there is all sorts of boundaries all over the place
touching each other even if they aren't mapped at present on OSM. As
for town boundaries are these even gazetted or are they informal?
