I thought  as much.  My solution to the same issue has been via the  
style file:
i.e. leisure=park & name=* [0xbla resolution bla]
This means that a POI is only created when the area has a name (that  
can be used in a POI search)

Like Marko, I would much much prefer an add_poi style action than the  
univeral --add-pois-to-areas.  And finally, and apologies for bleating  
on about this, I would love it if the POI that was added was *always*  
placed inside the area bounds, rather than in the area's  
"centre-of-mass" as currently happens.
