Great. Well, I can use the 3-digit MNC as a default and add exceptions
as needed, I'd guess. The only SIM card that I found without the MNC
length field was for MCC=244 and all networks in Finland use 2-digit MNC
as far as I can tell..

I don't think that that would have been the case in my tests. I used the
same reader for all the SIM cards and the AF_AD contents from the
Elisa/Kolumbus card returned three octets of data while the other cards
returned four octets.
