In 2000, ICANN wrote: "Under current practice of the Internet Assigned 
Numbers Authority, one-letter codes are reserved from assignment to 
allow for future DNS extensibility." (see, FAQ #47 

This is the same reason ICANN provided for now allowing second-level 
single letters, which is why I suggested bundling the issues for GNSO 
policy purposes.
