yes, of course we should only declare those places as "admin_centre"s that
are indeed administrative centres (having an administration office is maybe
not enough to be a "centre"). I was thinking of places like these:
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provincia_di_Barletta-Andria-Trani  (Italian
Province with 3 admin centres)
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provincia_di_Carbonia-Iglesias (a Province
with 2 centres).
