I don't see what the _ICANN_ problem actually is.

ICANN does not actually have very much control over the root
nameservers, thanks to Jon Postel's foresight. They don't have
anywhere near the amount of control they claim to have. I think if it
came down to the wire, the folks running the servers would be willing
to buck ICANN if they had to.
