You talk as though that's not a good thing.

But that's just an illustration of why artificial unions like this are a bad idea and won't last. The animosities of the past are not "over." The are certainly not forgotten.
The Poles are not going to agree to being given orders by the Germans after they suffered, fought, and died up until a mere 20 years ago (first by the Germans then by the Soviets due to the actions of the Germans).
This "quibbling" as you call it is just one of a hundred reasons why one world government or these precursor grand unions are doomed to failure -- a colossal, bloody failure.
