Thanks Greg

May I also suggest a 3rd option..... 

I understand Contract Co (but fear it may become far too complicated for a
simple task);
I understand internal to ICANN (but feat too many functions at a centralised
ICANN subject to capture, manipulation with limited ways to guaranteeing quality
of service). 

May I propose an Internet Community Association (ICA).

The ICA could be a light weight, with a specific very limited purpose to award
the IANA Root Zone Management MoU to that entity that can best serve technical
requirements of the Registry operators (ccTLDs and gTLDs).

It is assumed that the current IANA operator will be the first party to be
awarded the IANA MoU and should the current operator (ab)use its position to the
detriment of one or more Registry Operators (as determined by X (CSC, MRT,
external party) then such determination will trigger a process to find a new
IANA Root Zone Management.
