Isn't the admin_centre just an imaginary point? They tend to be in a
logical place, but that might as well be the church or the geographical
center (at least in current mapping in Belgium).

Also, often it isn't actually "administrative", because we mapped the
"Deelgemeenten" (part-community?) which don't actually exist anymore in a
legal sense (though everyone knows where they are and they are marked on
official signs...)
