Someone from LC once told me that it was a coin flip that decided place,
not corporate body or such would be the qualifier. I could never imagine
when a user checking a cite would know the associated place, except if
the countries were different. Even so.

Since coin-flips have been used to determine place names, why not
publication locations?  After all, if the flip had gone differently, I'd
live/work in Boston, Oregon, not Portland, Oregon...

Just a bit of local humor, folks!  But honestly, it *was* a coin flip
which determined the name of Portland, Oregon, named after Portland,
Maine, the other contender was Boston, as in Massachusetts.  Land
developers never change...
