Which makes it difficult to know or guess what the **** a tag relates to 
without research, especially if used wrongly or without consultation.  
Tags should be self-descriptive to the extent possible. Sorry, 
parochialism just gets up my nose! :-) Definite thumbs up up to using an 
ISO country code if nationally specific. Encourages good practice for all.

There are lots of examples of other country specific tags which do not include a country code on that page, in fact I can't see a single one that does include a country code.
