I don't like the "usually", and I don't like the fact that this
federal exclusive jurisdiction is something which can exist in
non-military areas (such as federal prisons or federal parks) as well.
 I'd rather see "boundary=federal enclave"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_enclave) or something like that
to represent this.

You'd still likely want something=military in addition, but the
jurisdictional issue should be solved once, not repeatedly for each
different situation.
