An email excerpt from Marc:

Finally, for UK -- You're right.  I had forgotten about wo' tay'.  I think,
though, for the CD, we should stick with tuqjIjQa'.  If someone should ask
why there are two names for the same country, I'd say that (1) it's not
impossible for one country to be referred to (especially in a
language/culture not of that country) by more than one name
(Holland/Netherlands, for example), and (2) wo' tay' is an older name --
perhaps the Klingons who gave it that name were thinking of the British
Empire.
