The problem for the Ottomans, though, is that they'd have to invade Bulgaria to get access to these territories. I certainly can't imagine the other Great Powers being OK with this.
England and France are likely to be on the sidelines and could chose the profit only route supplying food and munitions to anyone who pays. Other than getting sucked into the conflict by treaty, I do no see any potential gain to either nation that could result from military involvement.
Germany and Austria likely allies. If Austria does not ally with Germany, it most likely would end up the size of Rhode Island.
Italy has to oppose Austria. Russia probably opposed to Austria and Germany. The Ottoman Empire may sit out, but any involvement would definitely be opposite from Russia. Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and all the Balkan states could align individually to any of the powers, but opposed to Austria would be the highest probability.
