1. Did the various peoples of Hungary actually want to remain under Hungarian rule, though?Why don't you use a more detailed modern early 20th century map, which depict sparsely populated areas, like high mountains and swamps, and which depict the ethnicity of larger cities .
Here is the plan about ethnic borders made by Romanian Aurel Popovicy for Franz Ferdinand's request.
First: Itself that a country is multiethnic is not a reason to dismember it. It is only reason for hard-core nationalist thinkers.
Second: There were no democratic referendums to legitimate such decisions. The referendum would be a very huge risk for Romania Czechoslovakia or Yugoislavia to expand their territories.
Third: The Entente (And France) did not care about any ethnic justice, just short-sighted geopolitical geso-strategic interest. (Which proved to be false, if you see the political events of WW2.)
2. I agree that holding plebiscites in regards to this would have been better.
3. Oh, certainly!
