I think above 0x0800 is fine. But maybe it was also about internal 
processing and the address search which then didn't work anymore if city 
without name was used.
I would stay away from 0x0800 or lower without name however.

The main reason they need to know where the villages are is because they are mapping in the mountains, and it is important for them to know where they can go for help in case they have an accident - other use it to mark unmapped villages, so they can easily find them when they are out mapping.
