This needs a better patch. The code itself should refer to NL in the PROVINCES_NORMALIZED (including recognizing the old "nf" and returning "NL"). Also, there should be changes to tests/regressiontests/forms/localflavor/

I will work on this, but I'm posting this comment to make sure that these items are considered before this ticket is closed.

You're 100% right. I'm assigning you to this ticket, since I'll no longer work on it.

Closing as a duplicate of #10365, since that ticket contains the comment of why this isn't even necessarily a bug and why changing it is probably a bad idea.
