Excellent question (although it would be good to get back to policy development
on the PPML list at some point…)

To the extent that one views the Internet Numbers Registry as a collaborative 
coordination activity, whereby participants work together to create and maintain
uniqueness and voluntarily participate in the registry because of the value that
it brings in being able to more readily interconnect with others on the Internet,
none of that changes in an environment absent the NTIA IANA Functions contract.  
Those with other more colorful perspectives on the nature of IP address blocks 
and the numbers registry system would have to speak regarding impacts to their 
particular worldview.
