> C. if the above fail to reach a consensus, what is the fall back scenario. Do we define a reference framework, like the UN or others ?
Definite no to putting "regulations from the UN" above actual situation.
See say https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_status_of_Taiwan where UN situation and
officially recognized status clearly conflicts with an actual situation.
Taiwan (Republic of China) is an independent country, it does not control mainland China.

I express lack of willingness to accept that part. OSM is supposed to map actual situation,
not slavishly reproduce whatever was produces as outcome of political process in bodies
such as United Nations.
Note: this does not imply that I accept/agree with other parts of the
message that I am replying to, but this part was clearly and obviously problematic.
