So you actually suggest to implement a tree of relations to render a
country? Totally break lookups such as 'is X in country Y', you will
make friends that is for sure :)

So you really want people first to change everything to 0.6 and then to 
something else ;) I wanted to write longer about this, but I think 
allowing everyone to send just a complete changeset (within one request) 
  ditch REST for updating will give much more momentum, and requires 
less code.
