Why?  Do you really want that wish to be granted, for ICANN to become
a regulator of registrars to the point that every one of them has to
provide the very same service?  What exactly is the point of having a
market of registrars in that case?

Registries that have an agreement with ICANN (some ccTLDs don't, and
there's precious little ICANN could do about it) already do all
support AAAA glue.
