I wonder... are the various Gulf Coasts, from Brownsville to Key West, cohesive enough to form some kind of meta-regional article, spanning state lines? Would there be any value in it? --Evan 00:05, 13 July 2006 (EDT)

The Wikipedia article indicates that it's a cohesive region, but I'm not sure what the value would be in creating a region article. It would be a similar case to the Rocky Mountains - we could make that a region article, but it cuts across regions that everyone has already agreed upon (in this case the US & Canada & the states/provinces in them). In this case we'd have a region that includes parts of the South and Texas, as well as Mexico, and I'm not sure that the disadvantage of confusing the existing hierarchy is worth any benefit that would be gained by having such an article. -- Ryan 00:25, 13 July 2006 (EDT)
I agree, I postulated it more as a straw man than a real proposal. I could see an itinerary in it, though; Driving the Gulf Coast might work... --Evan 00:45, 13 July 2006 (EDT)
