It is much more interesting than that. Different countries
have access to different frequency segments in the 1800-2000
Some countries have 1800-1850, others 1800-2000, still
others 1830-1850 or 1850-1900 or any other range.
In some cases, there are no overlapping 160 frequencies
between two countries.
In other cases, the entire band would fall outside of
a proposed sub-band if there were an international
160 bandplan. That would lead to strange situations
like countries not having any CW or SSB segment at all
on 160 :)
There are good reasons for keeping things flexible...
