I propose to remove Kingdom of Middag from the list of historical periods because:

  1. the date of 1540 is unfounded; nothing is known of Middag before the Dutch arrived.
  2. there is no reason to single them out from among the 11 "shires or provinces" in David Wright's account from the 1640s.
  3. histories of Taiwan do not give them this treatment. Kanguole 14:46, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

The end date of 1732 apparently has no basis either; it is just the date the Qing suppressed a rebellion in the area. Kanguole 09:29, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
