Initialy i said "place=locality" is something which should not
show up in "Villages". The Wiki explicitly mentiones it as an 
uninhabited location. So it cant be a village.
        "The place=locality tag can be used to name unpopulated place which is
        not associated with any extant feature to which such a tag could be
        Flurbezeichung. Name eines Ortes, wo keine Leute Leben (Flurname). 

Here the German and the English version differ a bit - But both agree
that its an unpopulated place. The German documentation even goes
further and makes it a "Flurbezeichnung" which is a legal name for the
land registry.
