If you look at the size distribution of features with those tags you
will see that the distinction between place=islet and place=island does
not have any practical meaning in the data.
In other words: If you want natural=cape and natural=peninsula to be

existing natural=cape features with a well defined meaning which are
not peninsulas down the drain such a limit could help accomplishing
