I am not sure that this is a problem - I would think that you could 
log it as the country prefix just as TR does it and not worry about
logging what they sent.  Just as you would do for states - if I 
send TX or TEX or TEXAS - these should all be the same.

As far as I know this is how everyone does it.

But you would really need to ask K4JRB what he is expecting.
