I certainly think it should be added by default.

We can ask the community (or get some friends over at EFF) to help draft
something that is legally correct and language relevant (though I don't
think that it has to be in the local language for it to be legally binding).
Regarding what to display and how, that can be a combination of a few
1. Defined country in the config (can be part of the proposed
contactinfo spec you mentioned) - so that if there is a way to set it in
case geoip DB is not up-to-date with all the various IP addresses
migrations that happen
2. GeoIP based on a local DB. That might be great but it would a)
increase download size and b) would have to be updated a bit more
frequently. It doesn't make too much send to ship a geoip DB just to verify
an address once.
Another solution would be some kind of a Tor managed or secure server to
perform resolution when the relay starts (should have a flag to disable it
in the config). That way no logs are saved and we can figured things out in
a more accessible manner. Installation would be smaller and that service
will always have an up-to-date geoip DB.
