If you mean that each French-speaking country and region would have to
be involved in an association, this can perhaps be alleviated by using a
hierarchy for Geopolitical Context that groups accordingly. In CCTS
2.01, the example on p.60 states "If the Geopolitical Context has a
value of Anywhere in the European Union,..." in which case there can be
a single association rather than an association to each EU country. 
Duane, were you still taking this into account in your example above?
That is, were you assuming that groupings would exist? Or were you
assuming that they would not exist, and that an association would need
to be made to each country (in this case)?
