I was actually quite surprised that, when the merger of Equinix and S&D was
announced, no competition commission woke up and regulated it. An order
could have been for example the independence of the former PAIX exchanges.

I don't think in Europe a merger of AMSIX, LINX and DECIX would be accepted
by the EU competition commission. Though these three exchanges are not for
profit, which is, of course, another background.
