Yes. In fact the problem is trickier than this. We can take "the  
US/Western Europe" or something approximating it, and work for that. It's  
the "main game" for many, because it is the biggest single pot of money.  
But there are huge regional variations in what matters to people, and we  
should work out whether we care about them, in which case we need to do  
the work of discovering what is different between e.g. South Africa,  
Congo, Tunisia, Monaco and Sweden. Otherwise we should restrict our scope  
and ask the "rest of the world" to make their own core requirements...
