I'm guessing this may be related to the fact that ISO is now
delivering ISO 3166-1/2 codes "in the form of two
Microsoft Access 2000 databases." (Although you can also order
the standards without the database files.)
Trying to use the "databases" commercially *might* put you
in the situation of owing a license fee to somebody, depending
on what is attached to the "database" which is delivered by ISO.
And in any case, what would this have to do with ANSI?
