Let's try this from the other direction.  ISO says that Taiwan's name is
really "Taiwain, R.O.C.".  If Debian accepts every other ISO name from that
list, but rejects "Taiwan, R.O.C.", isn't *that* also a political stance?
Namely, that Debian is officially protesting ISO's description of Taiwan as
a R.O.C.?

So, would you suggest taking this stance without informing and consulting
the rest of the Debian users who have no opinion on Taiwan's sovereign
