I think your assertion that it's a gross oversimplification is itself a
gross oversimplification of what we are trying to achieve. 

All this data is aimed at routing and navigation, not being a source of
detail for the use of judges. 

The idea of having area-specific defaults has been discussed before, and
AFAIK didn't get formalised. 

Don't forget that even simple things like "what is a bicycle" vary from
country to country. Is a tricycle a bike? Is an electric bike still a
bike? Is a bike pulling a 3-metre trailer still a bike?
