The wiki and the region sub-sites are meant to be split based on
language rather than region (eg. JA for Japanese rather than JP for
Japan ); so in this case the ISO636-1 code for Arabic is 'ar' which
would then apply to all Arabic content. If there are region specific
differences ( eg. Chinese traditional and simplified ), then we can do
an ar_<regioncode> section.

Hope this helps
