Well, but who decides which regions to list? Should we list every region
someone wishes to have listed? In that case I fear that someone will
request that we include the Greek region Makedonia in the list, and that
it is necessary to call the region "Makedonia (the real one)" and the
country "Macedonia (the slavic one)" to make a distinction. Then we have
to start the whole discussion again.
I think we should only list those countries and regions that at in the ISO
list, and use the short name used in the list.
