We are in a catch-22 situation if we follow this logic: without an opt-out policy we have no alternative management regime, yet without an alternative management regime we cannot accept an opt-out policy.
A global proposal could be floated to develop whatever alternative management scheme you want and have
it accepted by IANA as a result of getting the identical propsal passed in each of the 5 RIRs policy process.

Attempting to make such a global change by a unilateral policy of a single RIR is problematic.
