It is worth remembering that some ccTLDs are primarily controlled by
their customers.  ISOCNZ controls *.nz and most members are just
ordinary users.  Not to say such control has always been there but we
should be careful about assuming that ccTLD registries are directly
comparable to gTLD registries.  The latter are just a business seeking
to make money, the formers are a variety of forms.
