Exactly. One (the Welsh) is integrated into the geographic region of
one chapter, the other (the Catalan) spreads across geographic regions
taken care of by several chapters.

On the case of the Welsh, I see no problem of having a "Wikimedia
Wales" as a "section" of Wikimedia UK, for example. But that is a
different story :)
