Good news indeed, ICANN board being practical and trying to avoid delays to the transition.
Hopefully this position can lead CWG towards adopting IETF/CRISP proposals for IETF Trust as a neutral third party to hold IANA IPR which can be then licensed to ICANN as IANA operator.

> We support the ICG proposal and the underlying proposals from CWG, CRISP and IANAPLAN. The ICANN Board is focused on how to implement the IPR component of the proposal. The ICANN Board believes that for stability and pragmatic operational reasons, the IANA Functions Operator must have operational control over the IANA.ORG domain. During the transition, ICANN is prepared to transfer full ownership of the IANA-related trademarks to a neutral third party mutually agreed among the operational communities with the understanding that ICANN, as the current IANA Functions Operator, will be granted license to those trademarks and ICANN will maintain operational control of the IANA.ORG domain for as long as ICANN remains the IANA Functions Operator. If the transfer during the transition affects the timeline, we advise delay until after the transition. In that event ICANN is ready to hold the IPR as interim measure but commits to transfer it within 120 days after the neutral third party is identified by the operational communities.
