One could take inspiration from the road classification system and use
country code prefixes for the value? `insurance:health=<country
code>:<value>`. Private health insurance in Ireland is different from US
private health insurance, so `insurance:health=IE:private` vs

You can read it as “The health insurance here has the value of 
“private” _as the term is understood in the USA_”. It could be extend to 
state level (`US:CA:whatever`).
