The question I would ask is: Who cares?

IMO government authority is only relevant when determining that the RIRs
are properly the steward of all Internet number resources.  But when it
comes the actual principles of stewardship, those IMO come from the needs
of the Internet community, as expressed by those participating in the
policy development process.  I don't think governmental authority is
relevant there at all.
