Translate things like "21CN-BRAS-RED7-MQD" on status updates to something meaningful

Although strings like "21CN-BRAS-RED7-MQD" are meaningful to those in the know, they don't mean anything to the rest of us. It would be far more useful if instead of (or as well as) the identifier[1], status updates contained details of either the exchanges or geographical area affected.

Alternatively (and I'm assuming this doesn't exist as I haven't found it) have some way of looking up "is my exchange on this identifier". I know I'm on Foxhall exchange, but haven't a clue if I'm on 21CN-BRAS-RED7-MQD.

[1]Sorry for loose use of the word - I'm sure it's got a proper name but don't know what it is.
