Me too. (Caveat: ICANN is the flagship place to discuss this. I bet
there are other policy boards, governing a ccTLD, that rely on ICANN
policies as a guide, not formally having to conform.)
I looked through RFC 1034 and couldn't any such requirement. But
even if it were, it comes down to what's in the contracts and not the
RFCs that matters.
