Yep. We need a map $tld => $lang

Redirect to http://mageia.org/ where the server will decide based on
the browser preferences. Alternatively, we could display a page
providing the country existing locales we support already. But then,
to have a consistent scheme, I would suggest that:
 * mageia.$tld redirects to mageia.org/?fromtld=$tld
 * this URL will decide of the redirection (with a maintained map) if
a single solution is there, otherwise will propose alternative

Not that I know of. And I don't think we should plan further than that.
