+ 1 and Yes. I'd strongly recommend leaving it to the relevant people
concerned (the formal legal staff, boards and management concerned -- it's
in their interest to get devilish details right and they will hopefully do
so without trying to out lawyer ICANN).

Perhaps a fundamental question... but as time/expertise permits ... I would
like a  response to Jim's earlier observation:

Emphasis mine:

'FWIW it's not yet clear to me *how or why a contract would be better than
the current IANA-RIR arrangements* or be an improvement once NTIA oversight
goes away. '

Thanks in advance (and back to helping the kids with exam prep!)
