break apart Newfoundland/Laborador from the rest of
the Maritimes?  Why not count each Maritime province
as a separate mult?

Maybe DC shouldn't count for the state of Maryland
because it is not in the state of Maryland.

Now here is another interesting question, for NAQP and
such, would someone on Kure Island count for Hawaii? 
It is part of the state of Hawaii.
