That sounds sensible to me - recommend that newcomers do what most 
people in England and Wales already do.

The "England and Wales" vs rest of UKoGBaNI issue can probably be most 
easily addressed by renaming it as an "England and Wales" guideline 
page?  The issues it attempts to address are an English and Welsh 
problem that the parts of the country with sensible access rules don't have.
