In the case of .TM, it seems Turkmenistan government changed its mind,
first delegating its ccTLD to a private foreign company, then stoping
because some .TM SLDs offended religious people.

Hope the White Paper will clarify such issues...

Governments still have to set up the rules, and respect them.

Talking with "neighbors" is the best way to avoid clashes and bring
changes of rules more smoothly.
