As I mentioned on ICQ the other day, I prefer not to get involved in these
discussions (prefer to stick to matters where I can more easily make a
difference, like promoting our hobby :) ).  However, you raise an important
point in that the ISS (unlike any previous manned space station) is not
owned by a single country, and it would be appropriate that the station's
callsign reflect this multinational aspect of the station.
