I have a feeling we discussed this a few months ago. My suggestion
would be to simply use numbers, if you're talking about a ranking
This avoids all the problems we get when one country uses "regional"
to mean something different from another, and the mappers there hate
using "regional" in a way that is non-intuitive to them. Whereas with
numbers, we can simply say "in Timbuktu, regional is a level 2, but in
Germany it's level 3".
Also, I definitely think we should try and align to external standards.
