Dear colleagues,

Following up on Jeff's reference at the end of the WT5 call ended just now
to the conclusions of the Cross-Community WG on the Use of Country and
Territory Names (CWG-UCTN)-

The conclusion of the CWG-UCTN on 2-character codes, and the rationale for
that conclusion, was:

"The CWG recommends that the existing ICANN policy of reserving 2-letter
codes for ccTLDs should be maintained, primarily on the basis of the
reliance of this policy, consistent with RFC 1591, on a standard
established and maintained independently of and external to ICANN and
widely adopted in contexts outside of the DNS (ISO 3166-1)."

Full report here:

Kind regards,

Heather Forrest
