I'd agree with Joe.  For an example, how about Postal Codes?  This is a
documented, understood, and defined set of rules and data.  

One would think it possible that a simple Country/PostalCode object would
provide data for every civilized address, every occupant, and all sorts of
specific data including a key phone number, ages, Geographic Positioning
Coordinates, and names of the pets in the household.  In addition it would
provide business rules, validity checking, and transaction tracking.
