I don't agree with you El. A simple google search on the topic "cctld 
best practices" will provide you with many interesting links for 
presentations and documents from different organizations in the Internet 
ecosystems (wwtld, aftld, itu, iana, etc).
We can also learn from other domains. For example, it is established 
that software developped from open contributions and well organized open 
communities (bottom-up approach) are of better quality. As software are 
considered a "common" (like Internet resources), we can transpose the 
same conclusion to Internet resources management and especially ccTLD. 
You can read [1, 2] on this.
