Sorry, I'm a bit confused by the imprecision in the use of "ICANN" here.

What do you mean by 'ICANN' in the above?

Do you mean ICANN the
a) corporation and/or staff[1]
b) community
d) board of directors 
e) none of the above (then what do you mean?)
f) all of the above

FWIW, as I suspect you're aware, IANA staff has already been separated out of DNS policy making, at least as long as I joined IANA staff in Nov. 2005 (I doubt this was reversed in any way after I left in July 2010). Speaking personally, it also seems to me that DNS policy making is driven primarily (if not exclusively) by the GNSO or CCNSO (depending on what TLDs we're talking about).
