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.
