For the record, ICANN will not JUST be the IFO after transition. It will be the IANA Steward, at the very least for the names function, regardless of who performs the names IFO. That puts it in a unique position, and one at least as stable and trustable as any other possible holder that has been named. And probably in the best position to be able to defend the TM if it is mis-used.

ICANN is _not_ "the IANA steward." ICANN is the steward and policy maker ONLY for the names function. The iana.org domain and the IANA mark apply to all three operational communities.
