Which country is to allow the use of its name as a domain name?

.BRAND new gTLDs and country names

Extract: "The Governmental Advisory Committee just published the country requirements for notification of requests for release of country/territory names as second-level domains in new gTLDs. Understand that if it is not yet possible for a .BRAND new gTLD to register a www.country name.BRAND, it could soon be possible: the table provides the respective country’s requirements for notification of requests for country names according to each country".

Question: why would the GAC publish this document if it was not to allow the registration of country names as second level domains?
