[admin] move administrative borders and administrative names to a special layer

Description

Look at this for instance: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=49.2407&lon=17.5615&zoom=14&layers=M

You may see violet ways messing up the map. Doubled village names. Looks odd. I think this sort of data has its purpose but not in the basic map. If you walk through the landscape and cross an administrative border and you get your eyeview off the screen and look around - will you see it? No, it's an abstract information. Instead you will miss the track that could take you to your destination and which happens to share its nodes with the admin border and thus is invisible (as can be seen here: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=49.1841&lon=17.36791&zoom=17&layers=M)

Simply said: This kind of stuff should be placed in a special layer (overlays) IMHO. Or not rendered at all. The map with these violet lines is confusing. And last but not least it's not nice.
