After further investigation, seems I am missing part of where the SLAs

There was a consultation process on performance standards that occurred
from Nov 20, 2012 through Feb 28, 2013.

The result of that consultation concluded that the IANA should provide a
monthly report on key performance indicators, as well as data about request
made and processed, and implementation of new global policy.

The archive of those reports can be found here:
You will want section c293 for the number resources part (append #c293 to
any of the URLs in the archive to jump straight there)
