Can you propose (in your eyes) better wording?

Between mapping and what?

I (consituting a size one sample of Swiss persons) would expect that a
German soccer site would also register fussball.de (in addition to
fußball.de) if they also want to cater to Swiss customers. However, in
that case, they might also go with fussball.ch (unless of course the
site is Germany-specific, and fussball.ch is Switzerland-specific, which
is the current status quo).

At least DENIC has expressed their position with quite a few
conditionals. In particular for the consensus call, it would be good if
these registries (and other affected people) express themselves directly.
