Remote possibility maybe.  But not really something that any ccTLD
would seriously consider doing.

You seem to think the backlash would be against ICANN/USG.

By and large, even in the EU, the governments supported the creation
of ICANN, and have been participating in the GAC.

With ICANN they got almost cart blanche authority over the ccTLDs,
something they didn't have pre-ICANN, and most certainly would not
have if the ccTLDs went their own way, since all but a small handful
of the ccTLDs (who were already in co-operative agreements with their
government, such as .dk) opposed this change in policy from the
original RFC1591 text and policy.
