Tagging towns by importance, not population size

Commented on a thread concerning how towns in some parts of the US are being mapped, not following the usual population criteria: New England place name inflation - #5 by stevea

One comment suggesting that there’s no reason why we couldn’t tag them by “importance” e.g. most country towns are towns, not villages / hamlets, & big towns as cities.

What do we think?
