Speaking only for myself, but I suspect that if _some_ (nudge, nudge,  
wink, wink) organization were to come up with a set of well-defined  
objective criteria and submitted those criteria to IANA, it could  
provide a basis for an IANA-driven public consultation in the vast  
mysterious universe that is ICANN which would get the ball rolling...

Of course, given the way ICANN is required to work, don't expect  
change overnight.
