 Replying to [comment:1 cnorris23]:
 > You can create as many profile fields as you wish already. If you want a
 "Location" profile field, just create it and populate it with you lists of
 countries/states/provinces. In regards to "chain selection," this is an
 area for a plugin.

 One issue with the current implementation (besides having to manually
 spend a long time to enter the country names) is that it's impossible to
 allow the value and name of the dropdown item to be different. This
 prevents you from using the 2 digit country ISO codes to store country
 information (which is the standard method used across the web). E.g. if
 you want to have the option to store "The Netherlands" as "NL". The
 current implementation requires the name and value of the selectable
 options to be identical.
