Yeah, I understand. The point is that the current catalan.ruleset contains
cities that are not catalan (as in "part of Catalunya") and have never been
so (cities from the Kingdom/Region/Autonomy of Valencia, etc.). They're
there because they would form part of the "Països Catalans" that some
catalan nationalists advocate.

Not exactly. Catalans resettled Valencia and the Balearic Islands. So it's
more like catalans became valencians and majorcans.

Not really... the disctintion between Catalonia and the concept of
Països Catalans
needs to be made.
