Re: Needs a local agent
No need for even that.. the Benelux has a ..Career.. in letterbox companies perfectly suited for this kind of thing. It's trivial in cost and effort for a company to set up a subsidiary solely for the purpose of a redirection web address if you have to comply with "local presence" rules.
For private citizens... Nothing stops you from transferring/buying a dot-EU at one of the cheapo EU website hosters that hold your registration for you. Could go as low as 20 euro a year for a minimum package, and if you're just redirecting there's no way you'd run out of allotted bandwidth.
Really not that hard.
