Please add a comma: "Washington D.C." -> "Washington, D.C."

Americans use "D.C." (short for "District of Columbia") to distinguish the federal district of Washington from the state of Washington in the northwest of the country. (I think it was a poor decision to give the state the same name as the district, but we're stuck with it now.) In many contexts, it's clear which one is meant, so the "D.C." can be omitted, but there are other cases where it is used. I note that a number of the translations omit the "D.C.", but it would be better to include it if there's an accepted way to do it in the given language.
