It seems to me that this is exactly why FreeBSD should stick with whatever
ISO says instead of taking an independent position. I personally happen to
agree that calling Taiwan a province of China is an exercise in ignoring
reality -- but I don't think it's a good idea for us to impose our personal
political beliefs on the project.

If that's what ISO decided to call it, then that's what I'd expect a file
named "iso3166" to call it.
