I am now reviewing the *addr**:city* tag.   Seems we are not very
consistent how we use it.  For example, Toronto:

 110707 City of Toronto
   9603 Toronto

With my minimalist mapping hat on (it's invisible), if a municipality has a
boundary defined, we absolutely don't need addr:city (or province or
country) in address points.

We've had a particularly active mapper in Toronto who added addr:city as a
kind of calling card. They also added all of the former municipalities,
still used by the mail for some reason.
