I agree that "City of" or "Ville de‎" is unnecessary.

I am now reviewing the addr:city tag.   Seems we are not very consistent how we use it.  For example, Toronto:

 110707 City of Toronto
   9603 Toronto

With my minimalist mapping hat on (it's invisible), if a municipality has a boundary defined, we absolutely don't need addr:city (or province or country) in address points. 

We've had a particularly active mapper in Toronto who added addr:city as a kind of calling card. They also added all of the former municipalities, still used by the mail for some reason.
