The reason I use boundary=administrative is because Burke Centre and the "Neighborhoods" and "Clusters" do have administrative roles. Burke Centre is a homeowners association (HOA) that has what some would consider governmental powers, collecting "assessments" (aka taxes), enforcing standards with legal backing by state law (they can even put a lien on your house if you don't comply!). Likewise, each Neighborhood has a board member, and each Cluster has a committee, which are responsible for paving and maintaining streets and sidewalks in that Cluster, providing landscaping and trash removal services, among other things.
There are of course subdivisions which may be named, but don't have any HOA, which I can understand should not be labeled as administrative.
