Actually, there is.  And, the point was raised in San Diego.

Call sign series have been allocated for the UN (with which the ITU is 
affiliated), the World Meteorological Organization, and, I think, one other 
international organization which escapes memory just now.

We were thinking that administrations involved in the ISS program could ask 
the ITU Secretary General for a call sign series to be used for 
multinational projects in space.  That way, the space station would not 
appear to be of a single nation, but, as a "community" project.

Perhaps, this was just wishful thinking.  But, I like the spirit of the idea.

Hope this helps.
