The Crown of a Aragon was more of a loose empire than a nation.  I'm against
that for the same reason that we don't include all of Greece, Persia, Egypt,
etc. in the Romans.  And wouldn't include all of Greece, Persia, Egypt, etc.
in Macedonian (even though Philip of Macedon conquered them all).  And we
shouldn't include Baghdad in American, either.... :-)

If somebody puts together Aragonese and Castellan, let's keep them to the
actual Aragonese and Castellan cultural areas.
