That is indeed technical coordination, but there are actually important policy and governance issues embedded even in this issue.
As an easy example, consider the question of whether the registries that keep execute and track of these allocations should be regional, local or national. Or what are the criteria for establishing a new RIR, if one chooses RIRs as the model.
How one operationalizes the coordination process has political implications, which is why, e.g., some countries insist on setting up NIRs or why the ITU wanted to replace (or supplement) RIRs with "country Internet registries" (CIRs).
