DNS timeline corrections

One that you missed is the date certain ccTLDs were added (for example, first non-US based domain was UK in July 1985). Below is something I had on file from 1999 which was sent by Elisabeth PORTENEUVE <Elisabeth.PORTENEUVE@cetp.ipsl.fr> to the wwtld@ripe.net list:

239 ccTLDs in chronological order of Top Level Domain creation
as recorded at the Internic, rs.internic.net.
Missing information for .FI (Finland) set to 880101.
Erroneus information for .CL (Chile) set to 880101 (should be in 87).
