The same old stuff as before but even more complicated now.  

Interesting concept is a "nationwide" bid for smaller or medium sized countries. A few years ago the then IOC president Jac Rogge suggested countries like Malaysia, New Zealand etc could find this better in spreading costs out.

A nationwide bid is fine if you assume the Olympics are basically a TV event- but once you start to treat them as a whole bunch of live spectator events, then travel between, say, the North and South Islands of NZ, becomes a pretty significant factor.

Agreed which is why a robust transportation system would need to be in place (both the Netherlands and Belgium come to mind as potential countrywide SOGs hosts). Even if it's less than ideal, countrywide bids are likely the only way you get the likes of Austria and Switzerland back in the mix for a WOGs.
