#5287 new enhancement

boundary tagged with admin_level:8 shows up as "City Boundary" in search results

A boundary tagged with admin_level:8 shows up as City Boundary in search results list; only if I change it to admin_level:9 or above it shows as Village Boundary. Since the meaning and use of village in different countries vary babylonic I feel the need to help nominatim find the right term to show the type of the boundary. One idea could be to additionally add a place=village|suburb|municipality to the relation. Up to now adding a place tag to a relation does not seem to have any effect...

Yeah this is the same issue I'm having in The Netherlands. See #5271 for my issue on the same subject.
