Sorry, we left the ML by accident.

I guess the difference is that a silo is a subpart of a more prominent
feature (facility, farm, plant, quarry, etc). Compared to your post
office example, it's like saying the near postbox or telephon should
have the name of the post office because the post office is not mapped
at the moment.
