Which is exactly my point. The proposed scheme misuses some tags
(addr:place), adds new tags duplicating already existing (addr:borough
instead of addr:suburb) and adds more ambiguity by using the term
borough which may mean things different from municipal districts, so
I'm for reworking this scheme, but there are people who disagree with
me. That's why I brought the topic here for more discussion.
