In the case of some of these edits, the suburb page simply does not
apply and I've explained why on the change notes ... reverting a blanket
change and then reviewing each on it's own merits is the only way
forward here. The same as a number of other 'mechanical' edits which are
being debated. In my book Hayes is a town in Hillingdon rather than a
suburb of the city of London ... It has signposts on the ground
directing you to the town centre! Just as has been pointed out on a
number of other 'towns' in proximity to London. We map the real
situation on the ground - full stop.
