If it's on a per-country basis, I don't mind - that's doable with some
maths. If the default applies > 90% of the time, then that's fine too.
The point that I get concerned about is if it's A 55% of the time and
B 45% of the time and someone says that A should be default.

So if the consensus is that it's almost always foot=yes (certainly is
from my experience, to the 98th percentile) then we should go with
that. And if it's just Germany that's different, then we can deal with
that too.
