Folks,
Simplify...
Use any legal operation from any point on Earth tbat is in a Maidenhead Grid Square.  That also satisfies the desire for more entities to work while reducing the political overtones. 
Put simply, if a government authorizes the operation of Amateur Radio and your country allows communication with their operators, then you are good to go!  Also, this opens up the vast maritime spaces to DX operations.  You can use a boat or an airplane instead of a scaffold on a bunch of rocks!

 Look at Spratly - claimed by multiple nations and still on the list. Even activated under several prefixes.
