The relevant registries are listed in RFC 7249; i.e. the delegated 
portions of unicast address space in each registry, minus the IETF 
technical reservations.

Currently performed by ICANN (pursuant to the IETF/ICANN IANA MOU)
as requested by the RIRs and the IETF - 


i.e. it is unclear if anything needs to be done here.

I'm unsure, do you mean "USGOV would have entered into an new MOU with NRO",
"NRO enters into an MOU with ICANN (just as IETF has for its registries) for 
ICANN to be IANA operator for the Internet Numbers Registries."

I believe so (presuming above clarification.)
