I think the rule of thumb against duplication is a good one, but if you
make a ruleset which is historically consistent and you can make a good
argument why it should not follow this rule, I have no complaints. Just
add a note in the ruleset for future ruleset authors about it.

For example, the "vikings" nation (Norway) includes Icelandic cities and
tries (somewhat unsuccessfully) to use viking age names for its cities,
instead of using modern Norwegian borders and city names. I doubt any
Norwegians or Icelanders would find that inappropriate.

Yes, like the Krevi nation. What/where is what? It only got two cities!
