There really isn’t any data stored at IANA that isn’t already public except the correspondence between the TLD operator and IANA.  There’s no traffic data.

The US legalizes monitoring that other countries do not consider legal in respect to privacy laws or as being within the constraints of Human Rights.  That means that under US Corporate and Patriot Act etc legislation the US could treat any data stored by IANA under any rules it likes.  Without ever telling anyone. That is not insignificant.
