Regarding the issue of ticking "self sustaining feral populations", in the UK 
we have an organisation - BOURC - which essentially decides which species, 
which populations and indeed which individual birds are tickable (this latter 
applies particularly to ducks which are often escapes from collections).

And the official British List does have several categories which are used to 
distinguish the different kinds of populations.

However, you will be pleased to know that this does not really reduce the 
levels of discussion and controversy at all !!
