I shouldn't be in the least surprised if "geo" wasn't already in use
somewhere, and probably "adr"

Also, given that, after sending vast amounts of money, multinational
companies still mange to release models of cars with names which
translate into things like "you smell" in certain territories, what
efforts have been made to check that, say, "hfeed" doesn't mean, say,
"menu" in some language or other?
