I've already received several complaints.  I did in fact see the 
posting on the CQ-Contest reflector but it doesn't change my mind:

*  CT and Writelog were DIFFERENT, now they are THE SAME.

*  All the UA9S/W stations send Zone 17 anyway, so the country files for both
    CT and Writelog ought to reflect this.

*  CT uses the CQ Zone to determine the continent for scoring purposes, so by
    putting them in Zone 17 (Asia) instead of Zone 16 (Europe), your 
scoring during
    the contest will be correct.  I don't know how Writelog 
determines the continent,
    but I'll bet it's the same.

*  You still have to log what the other station sent.  The zone in 
the country file
    is only a SUGGESTION.
