The only reason there is any current debate is a direct consequence of 
the maintainers refusing to differ the politics to a third party. Had tz 
accepted UN standards, as had been proposed 4 months ago, this whole 
discussion could have been avoided.

When talking about people and populations, there will always be a 
political side. The haggling should be done where it is appropriate, at 
the UN, not on the tz mailing list.
