A huge advantage the CICZ has is that it is a single controlling authority outside of the three ATZs, with good coordination to/from the ATZs, relatively low traffic levels, and weather which appears to be either IFR or VFR for 90+% of the time.
The mainland hodgepodge of umpty-zillion ANSPs, none of whom ever seem to talk to each other about VFR traffic, overlapping ATZs/CTRs, and weather which sits in the SVFR range for up to 30% of the time, means that the full SERA rules demonstrably do not work here for a significant portion of the year.
