Frisian culture is getting added to the North so it won't be so pure Dutch. Formamble Belgium might be cool if nothing else to have the Haspburg Netherlands swapped for Bavaria as almost happened historically, even if Belgium is the same name as the Netherlands in LatinFlemish culture as a whole is a bit iffy in eu4 timeframe imho. There wasn't really a lot to set it apart from Dutch culture, hence why most of modern day Flanders joined the Dutch against the Spanish despite religious differences in the union of Utrecht (the capital of which was Antwerp, Flanders)
The distinction really only came about during almost three centuries of seperate rule with the Dutch independence and the Flemish under the Spanish and Austrians mostly.
During eu4 timeframe there wasn't really any entity the Flemish could realistically unite into other than the Netherlands which is why there is no formable Belgium
