What could make somebody think the RIRs are capable of managing conflict of 
Can you provide some examples where RIRs have made policy which would reduce 
their control?

I have witnessed what I perceive to be institutional objection to a

I don't trust them to "manage their conflict of interest".
In law, when there is a conflict of interest, somebody else decides.

It's only natural in this case that the decision be made at the higher 
level, the level above the conflict.
