I don't know, this is best discussed on talk:uk I guess. It is quite
normal that there is no admin_level=3 btw. In Germany the
"Bundesländer" is admin_level=4 like the regions in Italy. If you are
unsure, you could also have a look at NUTS to make international
They are NUTS1 like the German Länder, while the French Regions are NUTS 2.

these are "cultural regions" and not administrative regions, so they
don't belong to any admin_level.
BTW: Let's continue on tagging if we do...
