The wording is, "Nominations can be set in any region, but they should be written by an author from that region." It would be up to the group to decide if the author is appropriate during nominations and voting. Do you really think Nabokov would qualify as being from the U.S.?
The thread and one-day region poll will be up soon, by the way.
