I believe the TM folks had a grave concern about that "list" of TMCH
marks being made public (which effectively would be the case, if it
was simply handed over to many registry operators). Given the number
of distinct registry operators that would have access to it, each one
would have plausible deniability as it got leaked/distributed, and it
would be impossible to identify the source/leaker who 'violated' any
terms restricting its use.

That list could then form the basis of premium names lists, amongst
other issues, in their eyes.

I don't have any problems with that list being public and/or
"effectively" public and widely distributed, though. It's been
repeatedly asked for by Paul Keating and others in this PDP as well,
so that we can dive deep and research the topics at stake in this
review of RPMs.
