well, this didn't prevent 12% of mappers to add neighborhoods as areas anyway: http://taginfo.osm.org/tags/place=neighbourhood

Tagging large things as nodes clearly lacks important information (extent), and it makes nested stuff impossible (or requires relations rather than getting it for "free" with implicit spatial hierarchies)
