it seems useful to me that each country/local community:
- keeps as much as possible the same general principle (different value 
to describe that there is a difference between a hamlet of a few houses 
and the largest city with some intermediate value between the 2)
- adapts the criteria between these categories according to the local 
context (if no population measures exist but an official classification 
gives an idea, it seems to me a good idea to use it)

but for administrative subdivisions, place=* look like wrong,
boundary=administrative + admin_level is the good schema
