 How do we tag agglomérations?

Currently, with place=* and their relative info on a closed way. I have
written a proposal which aims to change this tagging scheme: [1]

However, on a second thought, what you talk about is probably a different
concept. An agglomération has precise entry and exit points, marked by the
city limit sign - in Italy it's the same. I know that many mappers don't
want to have this defined by a polygon, arguing that this would force
consumers to do a spatial query to understand what the speed limit is;
however, the legal constraint also involves other restrictions (e.g., no
honking), and a dedicated tag would work better in this sense.
