for those of us who manage smaller cctlds pro bono, it is also good
for our sanity, especially when paired with the requirement that the
registrant be real and in-country.

it also encourages the isps in-country to take over the cctld, which
is good.  they can charge a bit for the service and multiple name
registrants become a good thing.

e.g. nigeria is finally running their own internally, though we are
not moving the visible primary and admin poc until it is past test
phase.  this is a long-awaited day.
