Release location options

Is there a way that you can skip an option when registering a book for release into the wild? For example, I set up World Wide Web as a country, but I wanted to leave the state and city blank, but it wouldn't let me proceed unless I filled in something, so I put N/A. Also, some countries don't have states or provinces. It would make the Go Hunting feature a lot easier to use if we could leave out an unnecessary option. Is this possible?

Currently, that's not possible due to the structure of the database and code on the backend. When dealing with worldwide locations, and specifying a consistent locator/drilldown method, it's necessary to have the structure of country > state > city > zone. Skipping one or more of those heirarchies creates messy "exceptions".

You might consider using the Domain for the State/Prov, and the website subsection for the City, and the full URL for the crossing zone, in the case of your eBooks.
