I suggest we "reformulate" our Highways & Boundaries tagging. For the
former, please discuss further since I do not know much of the Road &
Highway classifications. For the latter, I will suggest this:

Yes, that would be cool.  The admin boundaries tag is already in map
features but may be "reformulated" on the Philippine context. Feel
free to discuss and I suggest we make a wiki page for this.

Admin level 2 = The border of the Philipines (including the Spratlys
[the parts that the Philippines claim, per PD 1596] & the Scarborough
(?) Shoal; excluding Sabah & Palmas islands)
Level 4 = borders of the various provinces & Metro Manila
Level 6 = Congressional districts
Level 8 = Various Cities & Towns in the Philippines.
