Comment (by boonebgorges):

 It's a good idea to have a platform for community members to contribute to
 a database like this. But that platform doesn't exist (at least not for
 the WP world - it's worth researching to see what's out there more
 generally), so there would be some up-front work involved.

 Using the ISO database does seem like a promising starting point. That'd
 take the administrative pressure off of us - we just use whatever ISO
 provides. Unfortunately, we do have to worry about IP/licensing issues.

 This is a nice consolation, but it's not viable when doing validation. In
 any case, it's not as if I'm worried about huge flame wars. But I do think
 that these sorts of questions, while interesting in and of themselves, add
 friction and overhead to a project team that's already very strained for
