Being a belgian in Switzerland, I would also suggest that the division
is not by country but also with some share of languages.

In fact, here in Switzerland, collaboration between the 2 parts are
quite limited due to language. I don't speak-read german and some
others working in the other side speaks no french nor english.

Could we become more European and use language as a base for work.
Documentation in national language is part of the point.
And then, having subsection for each country speaking the same
language but with different laws will be also very interesting
to learn more about each others.

For example, I am sure that we could profit to share french
between part of Belgium, France and part of Switzerland.

What are the views of the other "minorities" in this list?
At least french speaking ones...
