Is it necessary at all, to use names of political systems like names of
states? Would it not be better, to use unpolitical names of geological
formations eg. "Island Taiwan"? 
People keep migrating and political systems come and go. Names of states
and citys are changing throughout the world. Names of islands, mountains
and rivers will stay for much longer time periods.
I love the work, Herbert has done and I would miss him.
