I doubt many people care about it. What I find interesting is tagging on the "European values" element. This isn't about geography or jurisdiction, this is just the latest in ideological enforcement. Even if you are in France or Germany, if you don't exhibit "European values" it looks as though you can lose your domain.

Toe the ideological line or lose your internet presence no matter which email or web host you use. This goes far further an a twitter or facebook ban, this links political compliance and ideology with DNS. I wouldn't touch it with a Dutch barge-pole.

They've made .eu utterly toxic. I'd recommend ditching them as fast possible regardless of what country you're in.
