That wouldn't work in this case, because as the OP mentioned, San Jose and
San Francisco have equal admin_level rankings (county seat) and San Jose is
larger in both area and population.

As an aside, San Francisco is unique in the USA (as far as I know) in that
the city and county have the same extents.
