Good to know, thanks.

I thought the root was a bit special in this regard, and the root
operators would prefer quiet notifications when they are encountering
technical challenges, instead receiving the notices through IANA.  If
this isn't so, all the better.  A single point of contact certainly
simplifies matters, at least as far as reporting is concerned.
