(3) Porting is inconsistent and awful, and there are no rules.

Maybe there are rules that would prevent a CA address from being on the CSR
for a US DID... but I wouldn't be surprised if those rules were not

Also, many resellers put their own US address on the CSR, rather than the
end users, maybe to follow the rules, maybe because that's just easier.

Good luck!
