    Yellow ("exceptionally reserved") code elements used for ccTLDs
    are also considered 'valid'.

Just some of them.

The ISO 3166 is not documenting TLDs but something different:

	ISO 3166 is the International Standard for country codes and
	codes for their subdivisions. The purpose of ISO 3166 is to
	establish internationally recognised codes for the
	representation of names of countries, territories or areas of
	geographical interest, and their subdivisions.

The authoritatively list of TLDs is of course the rootzone file du jour. Using somethings else is likely to be in error.

    It might eventually improve as folks who make broken assumptions
    keep getting whined at. And world peace might break out too.
