Town labels missing in Opencyclemap

Description

Paisley: http://opencyclemap.org/?zoom=12&lat=55.85006&lon=-4.40583&layers=B0 Shows Gockston, Ferguslie Park, Arkleston (all smaller areas of Paisley). Expected to see Paisley; it appears at no zoom level. The openstreetmap labelling of Paisley/Glasgow? and the suburbs is more like what I'd expect: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=55.813&lon=-4.242&zoom=11&layers=M

Stirling: http://opencyclemap.org/?zoom=12&lat=56.1287&lon=-3.92346&layers=B0 Shows Raploch, Riverside, Broomridge. Expected to see Stirling. Stirling disappears at zoom 10.

Also eg Dunfermline, Linlithgow, Gourock, Greenock, Port Glasgow, Largs - all disappear at zoom 12. This may be a different issue, since Paisley/Stirling? seem to obscured at lower zooms by their suburbs, while these smaller towns mostly disappear with no other label nearby.

All of the above are tagged as Towns in OSM.

Thanks for the reminder - trac is a good place to put things!

I looked into this after you tweeted about it. The main cause is that suburbs, when they first started showing up in OSM, were only city suburbs, so I treated them like towns. That made a lot of sense in London at least. Nowadays, though, people are marking suburbs of towns too, so they need their ranking lowered in the priority system.

Off-topic - I only tweeted because I didn't realise that opencyclemap had a bug tracker - only found that later on your OSM talk page. Might be worth linking here from http://www.gravitystorm.co.uk/shine/cycle-map-help/ ? Thanks for looking into it.
