Listing precise pointers would take some work. Here's a clue instead: 
Google "Kosovo site:icann.org". There are quite a few hits going back 
many years. Although I distinctly recall a conversation about it within 
the past year, perhaps that conversation was all or mostly private. 
Whatever part was public, should have been archived at ICANN.

Yes. Stephen has said he'd like to write something up addressing that 
issue, and we have time to think about how the guidelines should say 
that the guidelines should be applied fairly. I see no need for me to 
propose something right this minute, and there is value in letting 
things cool off a bit.

"If all the clocks in a timezone have agreed since 1970, do not bother 
to include more than one timezone even if some of the clocks disagreed 
before 1970."
