I like to have easy rules, the more rules the harder its to play the game. When 
someone wants to name his cities 0x00 he should be able to do it.

St. Louis (so we need dots and with national spellings we need many other 
characters ...)

K2 (Hill in Himalaya), 25 de Mayo, 9 de Julio (both argentine.ruleset)

Ok this rule makes sence

9 de Julio (argentine.ruleset), Freiburg i. Br. (german.ruleset), Rossell y 
Rius (; South America)

San Nicolás de los arroyos (26 chars, argentine.ruleset)
