I'm generally in agreement with your post, but the part "generally known to the inhabitants of surrounding areas" might be too exclusive. I would be fine with toponyms that are only known to 10-20% (for example), e.g. a few old people, while I would read "generally" as >50-70%

There might also be different toponyms that already have dedicated tags, besides settlements and dwellings.
