Lightroom: Map Module: leave GPS coordinates blank in Metadata field

When we drag photos onto the map in Map Module, why would it be necessary for Lightroom to enter exact coordinates in the metadata field?

I shoot without a GPS logger, so I consider locations entered manually never 100% correct. I want my metadata to reflect this. If I shoot 200 photos in Paris city, I just want to draw a circle (Saved Location) around Paris and tag my photos as shot in Paris. I will drag and drop all 200 photos on the same location inside that circle.

I really don't care if the exact location was 48°57'46" N 2°26'22" E or 48°57'03" N 2°26'19" E. The way we currently have to do this, gives the impression that all 200 photos were taken at the exact same spot.

This will start to bother me even more if I get a GPS device in the future. Exact coordinates will then get messed up with coordinates I entered manually!
