As a general matter, should I also ask my RDAP-only questions here (as opposed to the issues specifically related to ICANN policy)? Or is there another forum for such questions?

> 2.1. Registries offering searchable Whois service (e.g., per exhibit A of their RA) MUST support RDAP search requests for domains and entities. Entities MUST be searchable by name search pattern as defined in RFC7482 section 3.2.3 in order to allow for searches by contact name or address. Boolean search capabilities (AND, OR) MUST be supported, when a RFC defining this capability has been published.

That's because searchable name servers and registrars are required from all 2012+ registries, not only those who got an extra point for offering "searchable WHOIS" services. 

2.2, 2.3, 2.10 and appendix B deal with name server queries; 2.9 deals with registrar queries.
