Sorry I don't understand how in the current context, where IANA is an operating division of ICANN, you distinguish between sending changes to IANA and sending changes to ICANN.  Currently the two are one and the same thing because it is not possible to send something to IANA that is somehow ring-fenced from the rest of ICANN.

Are you actually supporting the views of IGP and .nz that IANA should be structurally separate from ICANN to ensure the transparency of process?
