The proper way to do that is to describe the specific
country/national/whatever detailed semantics of a specific value in a
separate table, just as we do it here:
(in the case at hand naturally nobody is ever going to use it, but if it
makes people happy....)

Doing the above allows us to limit the possible values to a manageable
set and allows our mappers to tag things without in-depth knowledge of
the the actual detailed regulations. Creating a new value for each
national variant is going to go nowhere.
