Licensing of iso-codes


we, the maintainers of iso-codes[1], are currently discussing a
licensing issue and are seeking some opinions from -legal subscribers.

The problem is as follows: The package iso-codes provides XML files
with certain ISO lists (e.g. language codes, country codes etc.) and
translations of those lists in .mo form. We do not provide a library or
any other program for accessing that data, just the data itself.

Would it be possible for non-free programs to use that data (XML files
and translations) if iso-codes is licensed under GPL? Or would we need
to use the LGPL for this?
