This would be an awesome feature, but should include optional guidance or validation support for fields. Many countries' conventions may require specific characters be used by regulation. Japanese for example may have some requirement to use Full Width Romanized Numbers for post code numbers. This would be a great piece to add to pre localized values for form guidance. Some countries may not utilize it, but in locales where multiple scripts are in play potentially at the same time, it becomes quite customary.
Field order should also be distinguished in the data by display language, not only country. So for example, in many Asian countries it is common to have "English" or Romanized addresses globally, where the field order may follow more North American or European format of small to large designations, while, the field order in a native script may be quite the reverse from large designations to more granular small designations.
