The usage above is exactly how they are intended to be used. It was simply
an oversight that the countries were never converted in the .wml file.
It has been rectified. Now I just hope no translators try to translate
the country names in vendors.wml.

I'm not sure what the best way to handle this is.

Now that it is being made easier to translate the boot disks, we should be
seeing an increasing number of Official Debian CD sets being sold in different
languages. We need to denote this in the listings. How about something like
the following:

   CD Type: Official CD (English, Spanish) (reseller) 

There is already a large list of language names in languages.wml. If there
is a desire to access them I'll split them into their own file. Use would
then be (totally untested):

#use wml::debian::language_defs
<:= $trans{$CUR_ISO_LANG}{desired_language} :>

Yes. The intention was that books would be given their own page once there
were enough of them. It's up to you to decide when that has happened.
