+1. Means past tagging is less specific.
Possibly a new place value? Dispersed or scattered? I think dispersed is better.
However .. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Chadwell-St-Mary is described as a 'dispersed settlement' when it does not appear to be what is meant by the posts here.
This is a concern of mine .. there_needs_ to be a_good_ definition of what a 'dispersed place' is .. not just some words that could be stretched or shrunk to mean things unintended. .
Those who want this will need to figure out what is a minimum and a maximum ... Possibly? something like?
A minimum of 10 residential dwellings each separated from the others by at least 500 meters, with a maximum overall area of 5 square kilometres
Then if the place in question does not reach;
the minimum then the collection is a hamlet, or
the maximum then they are separate isolated dwellings or farms.
