Is there anything like the NRO "RIR Comparative Policy Overview" 
available that summarizes and compares the other differences of the RIRs 
like fee structure, administrative structure, and membership structure 
as well?

With a quick search I couldn't find anything, but I remember Geoff 
Huston summarizing the APNIC fee model as based one logarithmic function 
a while back.  I find the Comparative Policy Overview very useful from 
time to time, but it only covers policy, sometimes it would be useful to 
compare and contrast the RIRs based on other issues as well.

Maybe simply adding a non-policy section to the current Comparative 
Policy Overview would be the easiest and most helpful thing.  This isn't 
necessarily out of scope for the Comparative Policy Overview, because 
policy is subtly effected by these other issues occasionally.
