A non-game example would be an application to teach geography. That clearly
has concrete educational value. But even if you remove the Taiwanese flag,
you still end up with Taiwan shown as a country. Now if you patch the app
to consider it part of China, how's that not a political stand (and very
likely to offend people in Taiwan, too)? Are we now banned from teaching
our children geography?
