Steve Huter's excellent post prompts me to build on his comment.  He describes 
a continuing and perhaps even a growing demand for technical training for the 
ccTLDs in five areas.  Do we have a sense of how many ccTLDs need or are likely 
to need this sort of training?  Do we expect we will have covered the ground 
some day, i.e. satisfied the need for this sort of training around the world?  
Is it possible to set up metrics and a nominal timeline?
