Dot-EU domains cannot be bought or renewed outside the union?

“In this first step the Registrant must verify whether it meets the General Eligibility Criteria, whereby it must be: (i) an undertaking having its registered office, central administration or principal place of business within the European Union, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein” ref

In regards to domain names, why not give the UK the same rights as Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, but that's not what this is really about, which is to punish the UK and serve as a deterrent for anyone else having the temerity to go its own way and say sayonara to the European Project.
