In his case, it sounds like he actually has a business case
for solution 3 above. It only requires putting a dollar figure
on the cost of losing the partner relationship and some risk
percentages based on his own company being unreliable and a 
pain in the rear to work with. That should allow him to set
up the infrastructure which allows critical workers (such
as engineers exchanging CAD files) to use the region-specific
addresses.
