Taking the world as a whole, you are no doubt correct, but most of the 
people at the EU who will be reading Paul's submission will be perfectly 
aware of European geography!

While these three countries are indeed de facto within the Schengen area 
due to the lack of border *controls* — they do still have borders ;-) — 
it still seems (at least to me as a European) very odd to mention 
Schengen purely in order to include its *non*-signatories, especially as 
the next item in the list is in any case the all-inclusive "other 
countries not in the EU".
