Institutions matter

Carpetblogger complains that Azerbaijan has failed to converge on an appropriate method of summoning an elevator:

Some locals summon the elevator based on where it is relative to where they are, not the direction they want to go. For example, someone standing on the 13th floor wants to go down, but the elevator is on the 8th floor. He or she pushes the UP arrow to call the elevator up, rather than the DOWN arrow to indicate he or she wants to go down.

Of course, this wouldn't matter if the elevator manufacturers agreed.
