I looked at that briefly, but dismissed it as being too americanocentric. The notions of borough_of and county_of either have no counterpart in France, or if they do, in any case, I don't know which one is subordinate to the other, so I wouldn't know what to map to what. And thus I doubt that a French person does either.

Conversely, I doubt an American knows how communes, régions and departements relate to each other.

If this module were truly generic, it would have defined an abstract hierarchy of nested geographic concepts, to which country-specific labels could be attached.

Finally, I find the Geo namespace somewhat ambiguous, since it is not clear whether we are talking about geography or geology.
