Unfortunately, French mappers have a different view:
"Le tag "place" est une indication de ville, village, hameau, etc."
In English: ""place" tag is an indication of city, village, hamlet, etc.".

I am not saying that the French view is better than the German one or
the reverse. Just that there is a disagreement and if we remove
place=locality from Index, we'll get angry messages from French
mappers. :-)

Any other opinion for this list readers?
