I like the new format. There is a ton of info to go through for the races that will help you refine things. For instance, elves from Minrothad are either Wood Elves or Water Elves, rather than there own special subrace. In general, I would deemphasize nationality in regards to races, and focus on subraces. See my attached examples from my old 3.5E conversion work to get idea: the subraces are distinct from one another but are not necessarily tied to nationality (also note there are other distinct differences crunch-wise, but I omitted for brevity).
