Just curious, but having it visibly sorted by country, is there any possibility 
of provoking some sort of 'one up-mans-ship'?  For somewhere like the US, not 
so much so, but smaller companies in smaller countries might view a competitor 
as having sponsored and decide to do so also ... I know that that is one of the 
fundraising 'tricks' that you see used on tv telethons and such "so and so 
sponsored $X and challenges others to meet or beat that" .. not saying to put 
that text on the site, mind you ...
