It appears as if only plus codes of length 10 or 11 are currently 
considered valid when entered in combination with a location name - while 
length 8 codes are correctly interpreted only without location name. For 

G98H+G3, Berlin, Germany
G98H+G3M, Berlin, Germany

*INVALID* (plus code is ignored on maps, instead highlighting the whole 
Berlin area; leads to error message "We could not find: G98H+, BERLIN, 
G98H+, Berlin, Germany

In this example, as probably in most real life usecases, the whole of 
9F4MG98H+ is located within Berlin, so it should be possible to 
shorten/recover the code:

Is this a bug, or is there any other reasoning for this behaviour?
