It would be nice if that regional coding had an expiry date.  For

purchased DVDs.  As it stands now, what happens when someone buys
several DVDs and moves to a different area?  If they move from Europe to
North America, they'll likely have to buy a new player and won't be able
to play their movies.

Most players will allow you to change the region code.... up to 5 times.
