Intrestingly enough it only seems to be on the .JP and the german(?) language domains (well I assume that .de, .cx and .at is german language even if it is just one of many language) for some reason

I don't think they use interests for determining that. I see it at jp and de but not at pl, for example.

It says on the doodle information link which countrys get it, though it don't seem to work (both ch and at have it but is not on the map, might be language based though)

If the BBC is to be believed, Google has apologized for honoring Honinbo Shusaku.

While I can understand(It's likely that D-day would be shown on some countries for whom it's most important, and Shusaku on others, where it's less), that bbc article is pretty lame.

Well, more for not honoring D-Day.

Either way, seems weird that some people get so genuinely angry about google doodles.
