Personally I'd avoid creating aliases unless there is a good reason
to.   The NL pages so far have been language based, not country based.
 That is how it has been done in OOo as well.  Of course, we're not
tied to that approach for all eternity.  But consider where this could
lead us:

-- We currently have ja.openoffice.org, for Japanese language.  Do we
now create a country alias, for jp.openoffice.org ?

- We currently have de.openoffice.org for Germany language?  Do we
create aliases for Switzerland and  Austria?

This can quickly grow to a big task.  And remember, countries and
languages do not always align.  For example, more people speak
Armenian in the US than speak it in Armenia.  A popular language for
downloads from Israel is Russian.   The 5th largest Spanish speaking
population is the US.

So partitioning the website based on countries rather than languages
may not be as useful.
