Default Different critical spell failure tables

I've been thinking about critical spell failure tables and want to toss out two ideas.

One is the idea of giving different traditions of mages different tables - this is implicit in the Dark Magic perk but this would apply to everyone.

The second idea is to vary table by area. So down in the valleys you have the standard table, but up on the faux-celtic Highlands you use another table.

Has anyone tried to do something like this?

Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them...he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”
