No becuase logistics issues would kick in

The languages thing with to deal with the problem of countires like
say India where it is quite posible that people would not share a
common language

Switerland has German, French, Italian, and Romansh that I know of. I
don't know how bi/trilingual people are in Switzerland.

While logicists will most require that to the case there are logical
exceptions (any kurdish speaking chapter would probably have to be
based in northen Iraq although sadly I suspect it will be a long time
before that becomes an issue).
