[OSM-talk] Lot's of locality names in an otherwise empty area

I have seen them too. I think they were imported once, considering the tags
in this example: http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1243337771 and this
I have changed some of them in southern Spain to more appropriate tags,
since they were in obviously populated places. I think the bigger problem
here is that place=locality is rendered on too high zoom levels. Today they
are handled like place=hamlet and rendered at zoom 15. Maybe lower it to
zoom=16 and give them a smaller font than hamlet or render them in italics?
