Unfortunately, though, this is an area where it's all-too-easy to fall into
the trap of thinking that the US is the centre of the Universe and everyone
else is a corner case. I know you wouldn't make that mistake, Elliotte, but
some of your compatriots do it all the time.

I do agree with you that the potential set of characters is unbounded and
one has to draw an arbitrary line somewhere. The problem is that different
people would draw it in different places. I don't really see how you propose
to get consensus on a subset.
