I'm a little curious about this one. I do agree that it would simplify
things, but is an EU contry code something standard that wireless APs
generally will advertise, or that clients will understand?

And we do still have all the individual countries to maintain. Maybe it
would make sense to define an EU region as rules that countries could
inherit, and then have rules for any deviations from the common EU
rules. Thoughts?
