    This was a topic discussed by the New TLD Applicant Group and
    Registry Stakeholder Group who all agree that we need this list
    from ICANN.

    ICANN - Please advise as to when you all can provide the
    authoritative list that you will hold registries accountable to?
    Any discretion left to the operators will be a disaster from a
    compliance perspective and places an unfair and unrealistic burden
    on the registries.
And if you are asking this, you should also realise that the names of
the countries do change over time [1]. The short names do change less
then the long names but they do. You might want to ask ICANN how to
deal with the changed information that as well.
