[shrug] If legal and practical reasons in the relevant jurisdictions
make it practical and desirable to set up Wikimedia Guernsey, then
yes, there's no reason we wouldn't set up that chapter. I am assuming
that, currently, Hong Kong is a sensible and viable option, even if it
will not remain so forever.

This isn't some kind of one-chapter-per-country, or
one-per-geographic-unit, it's an attempt to set up local chapters on a
sensible scale on a case-by-case basis. In some cases, this will mean
subnational entities; in other cases, it may mean regional ones.
