France != French. Isn't French spoken in quite a lot more countries than
France? For example Canada...

Also, a pretty standard policy when translating things is to try not to
change the "meaning" of the text. If I'm in the USA while installing
Debian, I might want to use Swedish during the installation, though I
definitely don't want to use ftp.se.d.o. Yes, I can change back the
default, but isn't the "Usually, ftp.<your country code>.debian.org is a
good choice." enough?

We had a discussion about it on IRC a while back, I can't seem to find
it in my logs though :(
