 Replying to [comment:8 boonebgorges]:
 > a platform for community members to contribute to a database doesn't
 exist (at least not for the WP world -  so there would be some up-front
 work involved.

 I see your point.

 P.S. Worth a look: https://github.com/PyBossa/pybossa

 What validation? Why would we need to validate anything if the response is

 e.g. Dropdown country has list of countries.
 Dropdown region/state/province's list is populated only upon selection of
 a country.

 Let's say a joining member at a particular BuddyPress community is from
 Sevastapol'. How will it work for him/her?

 First (s)he will write street address. Then enter city (Sevastapol').
 Then, he can't select region because region dropdown is empty/unavailable
 unless a country is chosen. So, next step for him/her is to choose
 country. (S)He might choose Ukraine (or Russia). In either case, Crimea
 shall appear in the regions list. This "self-determination" largely
 precludes ideological or political friction, I would think. There is no
 further validation to be done, since the person choose options from a
 dropdown (as opposed to filling up a freetext field)

 Other points well taken.
