Thanks for the answer.  What follows are general comments.

I read the document mentioned above.  The agreement is between two 
organizations, ICANN and IASA.

 From RFC 6220:

   "An Operator of an IETF protocol parameter registry undertakes the
    role as a delegated function under the authority of the IAB."

   "The IAB has the responsibility to determine the terms and conditions
    of this delegated role."

   "The IAOC is responsible for identifying a potential vendor in a
    manner of their choosing, based on IAB consultation, and for managing
    the various aspects of the relationships with that vendor."

The IAB, on behalf of the IETF, has had a clear line up to now when 
it comes to the IETF protocol parameter registry.  The draft diverges 
from that in several places.
