Regarding my partial revert[edit]

First of all, boroughs, Districts, and Townships are municipalities, "municipality" is not synonymous with "incorporated city" Take {{Lebanon County, Pennsylvania}} for example: everything listed there (except the CDPs and Unincorporated communities) are municipalities.

Secondly this is not a standard county template because Philadelphia is not a standard county. Philadelphia is a consolidated city-county, and to the best of my knowledge I'm the one who pioneered the use of county templates for city-counties (and Virginia's consolidated cities), with some help from Zzyzx11. Most county templates for city-counties need the "City and County of" because the reader might not know that the county is a city-county, he might think that X County is something other then the City of X.

As for the county seat thing, I don't think it's obvious. The reader might just see that and be confused or think it's an error or something; he might not even know that it's possible for a county to be it's own county seat. Emmette Hernandez Coleman (talk) 06:17, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
