Agreed, there's certainly no desire to confuse users. Therefore, what about
one of those funny little buttons (like the "Advanced" one in the connection
settings), which says something like "Customise" on the regional settings
page (the one that lists date format, decimal separator, etc. - sorry if the
dialog name is wrong, don't have my N800 in front of me atm).
