Matthew - 
  You are actually discussing the structure of a _single_ registry system
  (it needs to be a single coordinated registry system to keep numbers unique) 
  which is known as the Internet Registry System and was originally documented 
  in RFC 2050.  

  You can find more details on its present structure and processes for adding 
  registries in ICANN ICP-2: <http://www.icann.org/en/resources/policy/global-addressing/new-rirs-criteria>
  but that does not cover ad-hoc or non-geographic registries as you outlined,
  and would be change which affects on parties other than just yourself (i.e.
  ISPs, law enforcement, network abuse desks, geolocation providers, etc.)

  I imagine that there are many other possible models that could be considered
  (such as registries with overlapping service areas, registry/registrar split 
  models, etc.) but it would take consensus on a specific global policy to 
  change the existing structure.  Some of these topics regarding the structure
  of the Internet Registry system came up at the ICANN meeting in Toronto; I am 
  not aware if there are any follow-up activities planned for future meetings.
