i see.

But looking at those examples (which are of course US-centric) i don't see fields for the level of detail such as `dependentLocality` or `careof`. I wonder how one decides what is the appropriate level of detail.

Do zip codes in the US not identify the location better than city names?  I suspect that postal codes are used that way in the UK.
