Why only Germany?

Just to get it right: The Federal Republic of Germany was founded on 23rd May 1949 and (as response) the GDR on 7th October 1949.
... the creation of the GDR was announced in April 1949, that of the Federal Republic of Germany in May 1949.

It also seems that in early 1946 there was nothing to stop the Swiss issuing Caracciola an International racing licence, since the issue of drivers was not dealt with until June 1946, at which point the decision on cars was reiterated.
In October 1946, the CSI rejected specific requests from both Caracciola and Stuck to be granted International licences, citing their June decision as the reason.
So, some gaps filled, although no closer to an answer to the Stuck question.
