I'm not quite sure what kind of conspiracy this would suggest...

As perhaps sub-optimal as it may be to some, IANA does not proactively  
change root zone delegations if it notices a mismatch or error in a  
delegation. We are reliant on top-level domain operators to confirm  
timely updates to delegation data with us. Many TLD operators have  
expressed a strong view that it is in their prerogative how they  
configure their authorities, and IANA's role should be limited to  
performing a minimal set of technical tests only when change requests  
are being evaluated.
