I was speaking from IANA/ICANN's perspective in the sense that for a 2-letter TLD to be delegated, the first condition that must be met is that the 2-letter ISO-3166 code point must be allocated by ISO-3166/MA. At this point in time, IANA/ICANN considers code points marked in green and in yellow in the decoding table as 'allocated'.  This, of course, is not the only condition for a 2-letter TLD to be delegated out of a 2-letter ISO-3166 code point.
