GDPR Support for Data Catalog

We need an additional metadata field for GDPR which includes the source country for the data.  It would be valuable if this field could be automatically generated using the IP address of the source data (the country where the IP address is located).  if that is not possible, it would be good to have another field added to the data connector that defines the source country such that all data sets created from that data would contain that metadata field.  Further, it would be valuable if a GDPR enforcement flag could be turned on by the admin such that data couldn't be replicated to COS devices that are not in the source country.
