Agree with your comments. Thank you for flagging for us what in the proposal(s) indicate a significant change from existing processes that have been long been working well.

For example, in the case of gTLDs, the decision to delegate a gTLD is made before IANA gets involved and IANA isn’t involved in that decision.   See my comments in the Google Doc that Avri initiated.

Today, if a change lodged with the IANA Names function is contested, IANA staff will not move forward with the change and instead will request the contesting parties come to a consensus on the change.  While not wanting to be again accused of trying to influence outcomes, I'll admit I don't think changing this policy (which has been in place since Postel days) would be prudent.
