That's a really good idea.
There would have to be some kind of requirement to keep the data
up-to-date though, otherwise people living in newly-invented countries
would have a hard time.
It would be good because the web browser could automatically put the
user's own country near the top of the list.
But then, asking people to type a country name isn't such a hardship.
