I like your thinking. Something to consider indeed.
The original idea is 9 starting just inside The Netherlands, crossing immediately in to Germany, Belgium, then later Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy.
I have planned a route which comes out at 813km.
I have cycled Lands End to John O'Groats- End to End- in the UK, that's 1700km. That took me 13 days, loaded with luggage. I hope to have many people joining me this time around and I will be doing it for charity. Hence the point of 9 in 9- to see if it is possible as it is better from an advertising point of view, and therefore likely to receive more sponsorship for Children with Luekaemia. I am a Head of Year at a secondary school, and one of my pupils recently passed away, so it is close to my, and my friends and families hearts.
Here's the link to the event page:
This will definately be an endurance event rather than sightseeing, which I have already done a lot of in Europe. It will begin on March 13th 2011.

The gray part is where, if you don't consider ferries cheating, you could ferry to Italy, ferry back to Slovenia and haul tail north to Austria and make it 12 in 12 days. Heck, I haven't done the googling but could you get from Austria to Hungary by bike in a day? If you could, you could hit up Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland to make it 16 in 16 days. That's something to consider.
