I read all 65 pages of it, and this is true ONLY as the contractor for the
IANA function, regardless if it is ICANN or not.

Being ICANN the contractor has probably some positives, but on the other
hand confuses a lot of people since the role as a contractor and policy
development and other roles are (or are supposed to be) totally separate.

So if you abstract the IANA contract, besides the requirements as
US/California non-profit corporation there are no other requirements from
the USG.

So the US-centric issue is not ICANN, but IANA.
