I can offer at least a partial response.

This is an obsolete formulation, designed to link with existing headings
formulated under pre-AACR rules, accoding to which certain types of
institutions were entered under the place where they were located. I
don't have the documentation at hand, but LC has ceased to make such
references, and in fact CPSO staff tell me that they remove them if
found in authorities they're work on.
As for forms in qualifiers, I (as an Australian) don't really understand
the significance of the "township" designation; my preference, in
creating local headings, is simply to identify the place concerned).
From my point of view, the status of a place as a jurisdiction, or not,
is irrelevant. Am I missing something?
