ISO 3166-1

ISO 3166-1 defines country codes using the latin script http://ta.gd/アイ・エス・オー

Considering the new idn ccTLDs. I wonder if there will ever be an ISO standard that lists country codes in non latin scripts?

Whilst I am musing.

I wonder why ICANN do not have their own IDNs? They could, for example, have アイ・スィー・エー・エヌ・エヌ.jp (I have transliterated the acronym ICANN into Japanese Katakana)

Re: ISO 3166-1

Highly doubtful as English is their organisational language.

Even the 3166 list abbreviations are done based on the English translations of the country names, with the exception of namespace collisions.


Examples:

FI = Finland (the country's native name is Suomi, so why not SU - Finland existed long before Soviet Union)

GE = Georgia, so due to namespace collision Germany took an abbreviation DE which actually represents their native name Deutschland

AT = Austria (why not OS since the native name is Österreich)
