It's a very nice-looking URL, but I'm not sure how practical it is. Although the idea that "Cool URLs don't change" is not explicitly stated as one of the core principles of REST, it is nevertheless important. But political boundaries and names do change: some more frequently than others, of course, but they all change in due time. If the URLs are not kept up-to-date, then the mapping API becomes a lot less useful, but it also becomes a lot less useful if they ARE kept up-to-date.
