[ckpohliq] Less nationalist Olympics

Decrease the nationalism at the Olympics (in baby steps) by allowing athletes the choice to compete not wearing uniforms representing their country, and (also perhaps optionally), broadcasters comply with their wishes.  Use the Olympic flag when a flag is needed, for example medal awards.  Broadcasters may also assign those won medals to an Olympic entity for medal counts, a journalism tradition which is inherently highly nationalist.

The underlying rules on national federations specifying limits on the number of athletes do not​ change, only appearances.
