I’m slightly confused by this discussion. I live in a “hamlet” which is within a “dispersed settlement”. “Dispersed settlement” describes the pattern of isolated dwellings, farmyards, hamlets, villages etc. on a much larger scale.
We don’t really seem to have tags that currently describe settlement patterns. If we did then we would need “linear” & “nuclear” as well as “dispersed”.
The “hamlet” has a name (which is used in the address) but the “dispersed settlement” doesn’t as it is just describes a pattern of buildings, hamlets, farmyards etc.

In summary: we have an excellent source of mapped dispersed settlements in Europe; absence of any specific tags for such places has only slightly impeded mapping (although perhaps a rigorous insistence on locality having no population may make it harder);
yes, basically what you are telling us is that you've mapped these settlements as place=locality, which is not in line with the wiki definition of place=locality.
