I think that examples given in this edit are good one. I can confirm that

"A place=hamlet often lacks verifiable borders. Hamlets in farming areas
often have scattered houses and farms extending outward for several
kilometers. In this case the approximate center of the place may be
well-know, but the outer limits are not clearly determined,
so mapping as an area is not verifiable."

is a good description of a common situation. Are you claiming that it
never happens?
