Madness! Who's going to maintain the "Black Forest" region then which 
will contain hundreds of thousands of features?

Also - remember we want to map things that are verifiable. Some areas 
might indeed have a clear boundary; others will be blurred. Ask the 
local bakery whether they're in the Black Forest and they'll say no; ask 
at the holiday rental property next door and they'll say sure ;)
