Good point, I also wondered about the side effects.

Yes, sounds like a good idea.

I agree. I wanted to split the problem into two:
1) find a way to name all unnamed roads in hamlets/small villages
the patch solves this, but has too many side effects
2) find a way to compute the boundaries if they are missing

So, I think I'll start again with my 1st idea.
