East China (华东) is not translated as "Eastern China"; East China is a very specific term covering a very specific set of provinces.
The Southeastern China article starts with "South Central China (Chinese: 中南; pinyin: Zhōngnán) is a region of China defined by governmental bureaus that includes the provinces of Guangdong, Hainan, Henan, Hubei, and Hunan, and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, but excluding 2 Special administrative regions: Hong Kong and Macau." This article might be better served with a similar opening that makes it clear that it is the PRC's claims that are being described, not an objective fact. If it is a true statement, we could include it to eliminate the POV problem. Readin (talk) 04:22, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
