That is a remarkably astute observation. Obviously the locale settings for
Wallonia and Flanders are different; although they're physically diffuse
in places, each individual choses which locale is hers or his. So this
_reintroduces_ the problem of how do we decide on the locales we have? The
ISO list can provide a start; where do we get our additions from?

Why can I chose Canada (Quebec) as a locale, and not Canada (occupied
territories north of the 49th just to the west of lake superior)?

Can of worms. And he who controls the worms, controls the spice.
