Your blog posts, of course, are or should be required reading for all earthlings. We may just need to require them to be placed on the home page of all internet users in the next go round of contracts. ;)
While, as you point out, the USA has been a good steward in relation to allowing gTld'd from countries it has blacklisted in other venues to exist it's recent action towards the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gives concern. According to the New York Times ( http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/21/world/asia/us-asks-china-to-help-rein-in-korean-hackers.html?_r=0 ) the United States government asked China to "block North Koreas" access to the Internet". No, the US did not remove .kp from the root, the utility of doing so being questionable due to the small DPRK presence at that location, but an attempt to cut an entire nation off of the Internet by the country where the root zone file is located and controlled is worrisome. It opens the question that when freed from its current stewardship role will the US be more aggressive in asserting its perceived self interest in matters online? I don't have the answer to that question, I merely raise it with some concern.

J In any event, a link to the district court decision is here: https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/order-memo-granting-motion-to-quash-writs-10nov14-en.pdf. Not exactly on point, but indicative, in my view, of the unlikelihood of US courts interfering ….

Every country on your list that has applied for a gTLD has been granted one, not to mention many others, like North Korea, including all countries on any list maintained by the US government (and, I might add, the UN) of countries subject to sanction. The one court case of which I’m aware rejected, pretty summarily, an effort to force ICANN to change the .nk gTLD registrar. The bogey-man of unilateral action to divest countries of the gTLDs is pure myth.
