Hi Andrei,

I think your proposal looks good.
It is very important to get this resolved now as part of the transition, 
when the NTIA/USG can assist in getting the appropriate terms and 

The rights to the registry content and other IPR should be with the 
contractor - the community, not the IANA operator, but since we share 
the registry with IETF I support finding a common place for this for the 
IANA functions to ensure maximum access for the community for all future.

I believe that is a good common place to keep the IPR.

In the event a costs occur by handling iana.org and IPRs, the RIRs 
should of course contribute towards covering such cost for the numbering
