This is because you can't avoid a conflict in such cases. You must make 
a decision, be it following the ISO or following some other rule (but 
be it a rule), like choosing the name from how the citizens of the 
country call the country themselves. After seeing what's in the ISO 
list I said that better choose the second version as KDE's primary 
purpose is to serve the users, and in this case the users of that 
country find their country most easily by the name they are using. 
 Anyway, the point is: just make out a rule and follow it. Or if it's 
already such a rule (and there might be), publish it somewhere. Yes, 
this will be a political decision, but choosing the ISO list would be a 
political decision as well.
