I agree that they mark the extent of a 'suburb', 'development', 
'neighbourhood' etc.

I view them as informative - same as street naming signs - I would not 
map the signs them selves into OSM but I would map the feature with the 
name in OSM.
I do not see than as art - their main function is information, making 
them 'pretty' as art is nice but that is not their main function.
