I agree that an html page giving some basic information about 
tor on every exit relay IP makes sense.

If there are no major concerns from other operators to enable 
this _by default_ I will open a trac ticket to start
discussions with the tor developers.

in my last email I was referring to the local DB  (that is already shipped with tor packages and is based of
maxmind's data).

you might also use RIPEstat APIs for this.
