I'm pretty much with Nick on the not caring.

Personally I think the Admin Level system is unintuitive and hard to 
understand.  I'm not a fan of putting codes into tags. Yes I know 
tagging is over there ===>

Having said that if the consensus is that this is the right way to go, I 
have no objection to changing Edinburgh from a yes to a 4. I may even do 
so later this evening.
