I was thinking something similar. In that there will be airlines that are part of holding companies. They would likely have all the same effects of an alliance. Except you don't join, you become absorbed into the collective.

I would expect any smaller carriers that somehow remain independent might have an interest in forming an alliance among themselves though.
