The Dot EU qualify for 'emergency delegation/re-delegation'.

Quoting excellent CENTR minutes from Accra, reporting about
ccTLD meeting with ICANN CEO and President, to which ccTLD
convened also ICANN Board members:

    It was asked why .us got redelegated so quickly, without the
    US government having signed a contract with ICANN.

    Lynn explained that it had been an 'emergency redelegation',
    defining 'emergency redelegation' as a situation, where some
    trustees are unable or unwilling to act and a redelegation has
    to be made to preserve the operability of the TLD. This can
    happen with and without an agreement.

    For further information on this issue, see the link provided below.

    The redelegation was done without a contract, because the
    US Government informed ICANN that 'because of complexities of
    U.S. procurement laws, it was not able to extend the existing
    arrangements with VeriSign nor complete the necessary three-way
    set of communications among itself, ICANN, and NeuStar.
    This presented a peculiar set of circumstances: ICANN was faced
    with the choice of (1) either authorizing a redelegation,
    or (2) creating a situation where the event would have occurred
    regardless but there would be inconsistent data in the IANA
    database. Given ICANN's primary mission focus on stability
    (and security as part of achieving stability), ICANN authorized
    an emergency redelegation prior to an appropriate contract.


    It is uncertain whether other ccTLD managers would be offered
    an equivalent service in case of a redelegation."

Michael Froomkin made a candide question to himself, quoting
an article based on his own message:
