OSM is geospatially aware. Nominatim have stated that it's not intensive 
processing & prefer it over is_in*. If unwilling to use 'inside 
boundary' coding it requires *every* object to have multiple location 
tags for *every* search boundary. Expecting mappers to add this enormous 
amount of data is selfish.
