Following from Aleksandr Dezhin's "Why not use admin_level=* without
capital=yes?" in that wiki talk page, why not? Any place=city/town
with admin_level=2 is a country capital. Any place=city/town/village
with admin_level=4 is a state capital (at least in Brazil). This would
remove the need for a capital=* tag. Non-capital cities would have
What happens if the place node has a different admin_level than
specified by the relation would be... totally application-specific.
