OK.  But that is not how it is being presented.  I understand they are pursuing
ISO-3166 recognition, but they are proposing the TLD seperate from that
process.  With ISO-3166 recognition, nothing more than the standard IANA
application for delegation of the ccTLD is necessary.  

So if they are going the ccTLD route, what is there to discuss here?
