I wouldn't have too big of a problem with us using ISO 3166-1 instead of
ccTLDs. One problem is that we would again be changing specs and
possibly making some files invalid (those which use some of the
"transitional" or "exceptional" ccTLDs). On the other hand we like to
rely on well-established standards, and ISO certainly is one.

Any other comments?


If Darl McBride was in charge, he'd probably make marriage
unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
