Is it? I'm not seeing it. It DOES mean that 3 letter codes could be used
as gTLD (the ccTLD manager could apply as well and use it as a psuedo-ccTLD
if they wanted).
Nation States do not OWN the codes, or the standard (ISO). Nation States
have, in theory, asserted authority over 2 letter ccTLDs, but in practice
that hasn't always been the case in practice.
The Tunis Agenda that asserted sovereignty is a non-binding agreement.

I am not GAC phobic, I just want them to understand their role and not
assert more authority than they have on paper.
In practice, they have done end-arounds to implement the blocking of
thousands of strings at the second level without appropriate GNSO action as
just one example of how they would like to have more power.

Why? The ccNSO doesn't have ALL cc's as Member's nor do they have
authority over 3 letter codes. This would be a radical shift done without
"A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route
indicates how we get there." Jon Postel
