While I'm not defending the decision at all, I suspect this has more to do with getting it working with battle.net, which they want divided into zones.
A reasonable objective, but surely it would be straightforward to apply a default zone setting that the player could manually change if they desired?

No doubt there's some questions during the battle.net install so "where are you" could be one of them (or simply fire off a ping). This also avoids having to duplicate inventories due to having multiple SKU's, though that may be moot if they need localisation to fit all the languages on there or whatever.

I have difficulty imagining why this isn't a simple issue to deal with, though it is easy to be cynical and assume it's a method of enforcing geographical price discrimination.
