I wonder with these very specific regional editions if they are done for educational/ linguistic purposes, or as a tourist souvenir, or even just as a gimmick for the Tintin collector market? Sort of the way that “Monopoly” boards - both official and un-official - now come in all sorts of versions and localities.

Would there be enough demand in this case for it to be used as a text-book, for example - if indeed Aclot is taught in schools? Just wondering...
