I think your UNLESS branch is correct. Absent post-delegation enforcement,
there is no cost for pre-delegation misrepresentation, and I suggest that
were access to the IANA zone file to be misrepresentation-cost-free that
the consequences could be abrupt.

The principle is that access to the IANA zone(*) is conditional upon conduct,
not entirely determined by mere fee alone.
