Hello Florian,

2012/9/7 Florian Lohoff <address@hidden>:

This is currently the case.

>         hamlet

>         suburb

This is what is currently done:
       where trim(name) != ''
             and (place = 'locality'
                  or place = 'hamlet'
                  or place = 'isolated_dwelling')

As as said, for this particular bug the issue is not technical but
political. What is the general OSM worldwide consensus about the use
of such tags? Is there such a consensus?
