I believe I can address this issue.  First of all, there is one archery award which exists in more than one Kingdom.  The Order of the Grey Goose Shaft (OGGS) exists in both the Kingdom of the West and An-Tir.

I brought up this concept once to Galen during the process of this award, and the basic opinion was that the 'leg-work' to arrange an equivalent to the White Scarf Treaty was going to be to involved.  In concept I do agree with Don Dore though that it would be exceptionally cool to have been able to do so.
