I'm another (Alta) Californian, and I have to agree. That part of Mexico is already called Baja California, and no one cares.

The sheer fury of the Greek objection over the name of Macedonia does baffle me. And I've spent a lot of time in the area (been to Macedonia three times; could never afford to go to Greece) and generally have a pretty decent idea of how things work in the region.
