I drafted the attached that does something along those lines. It 
deliberately sticks to the Uzhhorod/Uzhgorod example instead of 
better-known disputes like Kyiv/Kiev, Beijing/Shanghai, and San 
Francisco/Los Angeles (don't get me started!), to try to lessen the 
number of readers that might be offended. It also mentions using a map, 
which is out of our scope and also can rile users (ask Microsoft about 
the India-Pakistan border...) but we might as well mention geolocation 
while we're in the neighborhood, so to speak.
