Could someone from Europe enlighten me as to why this matters anymore? I 
understand the history, but isn't Europe just "Europe" now, i.e., no 
east/west boundry? It's not like we say Canada is a "Northern North-American 
country" and Mexico is a"Southern North-America country", or that Columbia is 
"Northern-South-American" and Argentina is "Southern-South American". 

Why do these designations need to exist in KDE?

I apologize in advance if what I just said offends anyone, I just really don't
