I already stated and mentioned that, yes, I was wrong on that point.

But I did so in the list this thread should belong, imho.....I won't

For rationale and current state of reflexion about this topic, please
refer to recent posts to -boot.

On that point, I guess *you* are wrong. Konstantinos explained this in
-boot and I also gave a very serious reference to issues related to
the Macedonia name problem.

For greeks, as far as I understood, Macedonia is already part of their

Anyways, the issue is indeed different because it seems that some kind
of compromise has been accepted by all parties on the MK issue, at
least temporarily.

Which is of course not the case for Taiwan (yes, I also call it
