Where should the city/town/village mark be positioned relative to the place? In geometrical centre? On the main square? At the town hall?

The place= node should be placed somewhere near a natural center. This node is often used by search engines and renderers and the most natural location to place a label or route people to is to the centre of the city/town/village. It does not matter exactly where you place the node because it is assumed that the place is big. Prefrably the node should be placed some place near the main square and town hall. Normaly theese are located close enough to avoid confusion.
