Data Structure for Place Names

Classification: Query
I'm glad FTM is creating a better structure to better handle places though I have a few questions on long term strategy.

I currently create my places using {city},{county},{state},{country} with the comma being the delimiter. I include churches, hospitals, schools, etc in the description field for event like burial and birth.

Rather than just listing all the people associated with a location, will FTM list locations under a place, ie churches in a county? Do I need to redo all my places and put non-political locations in the place field with a comma or keep them in the Description field.

I'm also redoing some of my locations to include names at the time of a record, ie a District vs present County.

Basically, how do we need to structure our place data to best take advantage of upgrades in FTM, especially if they start allowing search based on location, and listing places on the mobile app based on your current location.
