a place that has no name should not have a place=* object.
but it's quite normal not to know everything, especially with
source=imagery and therefore it's quite valid to have a place=* that
doesn't have yet a tag name=*.
however if someone were to notice that this place has no name, because
for example it's a piece of a bigger place=* with a name, he would just
have to change it to no:place=* + noname=yes (to avoid that another
contributor adds a place=* back)
