i would like to ask if is compliant with TMF to consider "firstName", "lastName", "salutation" fileds as part of "place" field?
These properties are relevant for Individual, a subclass of Party. It would be inappropriate to add to Place, what will you do if the Place is associated with an Organization.
If anything, the concretes of Place (GeoAddress, GeoLocation, GeoSite) should have a RelatedParty, which could eventually point to individual or organization. GeoSite already has this, but it's more difficult to agree that an address and location should be associated with a related party.
