IMHO, it doesn't make sense because I think we are not going to get
all the .mx .cl .co .ar and the rest of Spanish spoken countries.

Maybe at this time in the Spanish LC, Spaniards are the majority but I
hope we will count with more and more people from SouthAmerica. And I
expect that LC name is not confusing them...

I wonder why all the people say "Spanish" for the language and in
Spain we say "Castellano", not "Español" for our language. It's like
the "Free" ambiguity in English... OK, forget me :P
