Not speaking as critical admin but as CAcert user and open source
advocate here: this statement about "limitation" seems at odds with
CAcert's general policies, so it would really be nice if this claim
is substantiated with clear facts - a license, sources of non-public
information, amount of it, etc. ...

Strong support from 
critical-admin AT cacert.org
 for this -- this data
is not critical and should not be managed by critical sysadmins.

The initial complete export can simply be dealt with by a mysqldump of
the countries, regions and location tables, which will be scp'ed to a
Software-Assessment designated location.

In return we'd expect updates to the live data to be supplied to us
by signed e-mail from the Software-Assesment team with mysql update
scripts for the above mentioned tables.
