 I don't know enough about addresses worldwide to know how to build this in
 a really general way. Is anybody out there an expert?

 It wouldn't really be worth building this unless we had some sort of
 validation routines. But validation will mean either pinging external
 services, or bundling libraries (like those that contain lists of US
 states and Canadian provinces). For philosophical reasons, I think we want
 to avoid the external services bit (unless there's a non-commercial,
 community resource out there). For libraries, we'd want to find something
 that is properly maintained and correctly licensed. Does anyone know of

 The connection to geolocation would depend on a whole host of other
 factors, which I think are better covered in #5496. If the geolocation
 exists, then linking together this kind of field type is fairly trivial.
