There is no other place to play.

There is some misunderstanding that some people believe that a ccTLD
can remove itself from ICANN if it becomes dissatisfied with it.

That really is not an option.   Even if a ccTLD embraced alt.roots, it
would not really have any effect other than as PR for the alt.roots.

It would not result in the ccTLD not resolving in ICANN roots, nor
would it broaden the resolution of alt.roots.

ccTLD registries do not control name resolution inside their
countries, which is apparently what some people who think this is some
"coup" option seem to believe.
