Leica - Made in Germany

Is Leica "made in Germany" according to common sense or according to legal sense? It seems that the cameras are completely fabricated outside of Germany and then a small percentage of the camera has it's final parts assembled and then tested in Germany.

This puts Leica in the same camp as most manufactures today:
Leica = design house.

Why the continued need to state where it is made? Just tell us you have the camera made by cheap labor... why all the smoke and mirrors? Perhaps we might noticed the outrages prices? Perhaps we might question that only a few of the profits from the camera go to those who really make them?

It is good to be king these days no?
