I seem to have missed that discussion, because I strongly disagree with
that. After all, there are "regional" rulesets that share cities with
"national" rulesets (for example: catalan.ruleset and spanish.ruleset,
bavarian.ruleset and german.ruleset); there also are rulesets for
different nations that share cities because some of these nations were
founded by colonists from another (spanish.ruleset => argentine.ruleset,
chilean.ruleset, filipino.ruleset, for example).
