And Bright Hills (northern, but since we're on the subject and I'm
homesick this week ...) only went barony about 3 years ago.  Stierbach and
Isenfir (both still shires) were also shires at that time. 

Having been through the experience of a shire going barony, I can also
offer a good reason why some shires may not want to do it - it's an
enormous amount of work.  It took BH almost 3 years just to get the
paperwork sorted out.  :)
