So far I did use admin_centre only for the capital but I guess this does
not work in the Netherlands where the capital is not the seat of the

Another example for multi-admin-centres are the Azores. There the
executive, legislative and judicial branches have been split to
different cities on different islands.

All together it seems we need to separate admin_centre and capital as
soon as they are different and/or as soon as more than one admin_centre
is defined.

Regarding the original discussion I am in favour of using
capital=[2-10]* if an additional tag is needed. The semicolon (;) is
defined as value separator so we could have capital=4;6;8 or similar.
