I also wonder if a proper definition of the "Intellectual Property
Assets" is necessary.

I'd personally like to see a more clear distinction between the IANA
trademark, IANA.ORG domain that are to be transferred to an independent
entity as part of the transition, public registry data that should be in
the public domain and any other data and IP assets that will be assigned
to the RIRs (or their successors, assigns and designees).
