I had! I think I only discussed this with Dom, but I was pondering
the road/street locales, e.g. Cowley Road.
At the moment, these have things in them that are not strictly on the
road itself, e.g. the Magic Cafe is in the Iffley Road and Cowley Road
locales, because there isn't really a name for the locale that lies
between those roads.
When you say "is in" do you mean you feel it should be? Because at the
moment, it's only in the East Oxford locale, which is what I think is
correct. I did a sketch of (what are effectively) locales when I was
thinking of districts for OSM. http://walking-papers.org/scan-large.php?id=mkfsgn6c
although it was only a "first draft".
For what it's worth, when it comes to Road Locales, I think Magdalen Road
probably deserves a locale of its own these days, but I'd only use the road
locale for something on the road itself, or within a couple of hundred
metres of it. I'd find it hard if a group of people said they were meeting
"in the Cowley Road area" and then discovered they'd gone to the Pegasus
Cafe (at the Iffley Road end of Magdalen) - even more so if I were a student
than now, when I know the area pretty well.
Looking at this, I'd say Jahazi, the Inner Bookshop, Everest and Oxford
Cycle Workshop are incorrectly tagged. The latter has moved location anyway
- I'll try and get the correct geotags in soon unless someone beats me to
