But they might choose a country in that region that is less likely to
mess with the RIR. For instance, ARIN would probably be a lot safer in
Canada than in the US... RIPE could relocate to Swiss or Sweden
(although I think Holland is not that much of a risk), for instance.
LACNIC in Uruguay seems a good choice to me, the same with AfriNIC in
Mauritius.
