Title: The term 'Dutch' is wrong!

The term 'Dutch' is wrong! This is a license plate format from The Netherlands, not 'Dutch'! 'Dutch' is NOT a country but a language which is spoken in different countries (with different forms of plate numbers). As such, please do not use such a regexp if you know your users speak 'Dutch'. Their license plate number pattern might be quite different!
