I inserted a time ago Morocco on  that page 
I forgot that page.
Maybe i change the Admin_level=7  from "caidats" to "cercles" and assing the 
"caidats" to boundary_local_authority would be a good sullution,
because the "caidats" are under lower level then "cercles".

boundary_local_authority are mentioned here in the overlay:

administrative layer of Morocco:

best regards

Admin_level=7 is already documented as districts/caïdats on the wiki :

But not used in data :

admin_level must be used for... admin limit and must be consistent,
lower levels must be included in upper level. Note, boundaries can be
other type than adminstrative. I don't know enough the Morocan
admistrative layers to provide an answer, but only point you ressources.
