This does keep showing the holes in the whole process :( While I
appreciate that one camp seem to think that scanning the whole database
for other objects with enclosing boundaries that MAY relate to the
contained object, information such as the edubase ref and even the fact
that Stanley House is part of Rugby School and not simply a house in
Rugby seems to get lost. I think that this still goes back to the
macro/micro mapping problem. At one level we only need an icon for
'Rugby School' and all the secondary tags appear against that, but with
all the fine detail now contained inside the likes of 'Rugby School',
some consistent way of combining that at the higher level is what is
missing? I STILL think there is a 'place' for 'place=Rugby School' much
as Nominatim adds and that the place elements hold the macro view with
links to the micro elements ...

Other thought on this is ref:edubase defines the edubase link, so why
are we not using ref:fhrs for the food hygiene link. We then define
lookups from ref:xxx to the secondary dama on each of those database ...
I don't think we need to add fhrs:authority everywhere. It's inherited
from the ref:fhrs ...
