People seem to overlook who makes the decisions here.

Some UN body decides who gets added to ISO3166.  They have decided EU
gets added.  They would also decide if any other "entity" asks for one
of the above.

Once an entry into ISO3166 gets made then ICANN/IANA role seems to be
simply who it will be delegated to, not whether it will be delegated.
