That said there are some small publishers where the codes should work internationally and maybe after they close the gaps/leaks they will open that back up. But, progress is slow and since they got it wrong the first few times they may not be too eager to open it back up.
FWIW as an author I don't set different rules for different regions. I just set the thing to "Go for all regions." The price gets calculated based on the exchange rate. I can alter that some to make the prices look "normal." For example I can set the US price to 2.99 and Canada will be 3.12. So I can go in and make it 2.99 in Canada so that it doesn't fluctuate or look like an exchange rated price.
It is possible to choose NOT to sell in a particular region. I'm sure Kobo acts as the distributor for the larger publishers, but I'm also sure those publishers set the rules and they have to abide by the stupid "geo-restrictions" that are legacy for all trad publishers. They aren't going to be letting go of that any time soon.
