perhaps we could find out more about the motivations and experiences of
those who chose continental TLDs (.eu, .africa, .asia) instead of local
ccTLDs. I wonder if these registries would be supportive of such research?

I can reveal that the marketing strategy of DotAsia successfully focuses on
people's diverse motivations for preferring to use .asia to their ccTLDs -
and its an interesting story that Edmon and Pavan can tell. No doubt the
other regional registries have similar tales.
