Adding parameters to locations
It would be nice to be able to add parameters to locations as oppose just host groups.
We might want a specific set of data tied to a location that is a set of parameters, which then would enable you to inherit that data for your hostgroup. i.e. i might want
Location/Datacentre/Datacentre_hall -> which would contain a set of parameters tied to that hall
When i add a new host, i would choose it's location and then the hostgroup i.e. role of the server it belongs to.
Currently i have locations and then a load of hostgroups for al the varying locations.

I guess from my point of view, as a user, it would be
global -> location -> domain -> OS -> Hostgroup -> host
As you may tie many domains to locations so you would want a location to be the top and global wouldn't be global if it was placed beneath something more global.

Yep that makes sense to me too ;-) .
I'd logically think of it as an organization have a presence in one or many locations as oppose a location having one or more organizaional presences when it comes to the infrasdtructure as the infrastructure really ties to the organization first and foremost.
