This is what I am saying: VGNICs can document them if EZOP uses ISO 
3166 as their referent to produce HomeRoots. This might lead to 
competition if some people dedicate a class to include societalTLDs.

This is not my responsibility, but I suppose it would be better if 
ISO 3166 was keeping concentrating the internet codes rather than 
another international agency like ITU (mobile related information) or 
UNESCO or a private business organization like ICC or GS1, etc. i.e. 
maintenance agencies where ICANN is not a member?

The FCC/Tymnet-Postel-ICANN solution has hold well until now. May be 
time to adapt ICP-1 http://www.icann.org/en/resources/cctlds/delegation
to consider Keith's remarks and the probable emergence of VGNs and 
the HomeRoot experimentation.
