In the Joint Project Agreement related to that IANA contract, the DoC instructs ICANN to maintain legal agreements with the RIRs. A review of the NRO history reveals only a non-binding letter of affirmation with the NRO, but let's just assume that is adequate. In the affirmation letter, ICANN delegates responsibility for allocating addresses and "facilitating" development of policies. I do not see the delegation of other powers such as "reclamation" authority etc. Maybe I'm missing something?

I just read these documents, and I see that they create a relationship for the development of global policy. I don't see where they grant regulatory authority to any RIR - perhaps you can clarify with something more than your opinion?
