the devil is in the details and figuring out how "the DNS community" can
possibly enter into a contract is not so clear to me.

I do believe that there are ways to limit the ability of the board to
effect changes that are not agreed by the affected parties - particularly
the TLD operators - one does need a way to deal with the possibility that
the operator is failing to live up to an accountability framework that
might be codified in a mutual affirmation of commitments that includes a
mechanism for dispute resolution.
