I have to say i don't quite understand what you are actually proposing
with the different scenarios described.
Also i have some trouble understanding your proposal in general,
could you explain what "the extend of a settlement" is, how i can map
this on the ground?
Your introductory remark:

by the way is wrong. Nodes and areas are two abstract concepts within
OSM used to represent elements of reality. While there are features
that would normally be represented as areas that are occasionally as a
simplified representation mapped as nodes (like a lake) there are also
many things that are represented as nodes that should never be
attempted to be mapped as areas - either by convention (like
place=ocean) or due to their nature (like natural=peak).
