ccTLDs and Sitemaps

Can I have one XML sitemap for all my ccTLDs?

Hi all,

I was just wondering if I could have a single XML sitemap for all my ccTLDs at my main domain?! Is that possible?

Say I have:
example.com
example.fr
example.de
example.jp

Can I have one combined list of URLs at example.com/sitemap.xml for other ccTLDs?

Or this works only with Sub domains and Sub folders since they are part of the same domain?

example.com
example.com/jp/
jp.example.com


Thanks a lot for your help!

according to the sitemaps protocol, no and no.

http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html#location:
The location of a Sitemap file determines the set of URLs that can be included in that Sitemap. A Sitemap file located at http://example.com/catalog/sitemap.xml can include any URLs starting with http://example.com/catalog/ but can not include URLs starting with http://example.com/images/.
...
Note that this means that all URLs listed in the Sitemap must use the same protocol (http, in this example) and reside on the same host as the Sitemap. For instance, if the Sitemap is located at http:/ /www.example.com/sitemap.xml, it can't include URLs from http://subdomain.example.com.
