AFAIK, a piece of paper signed by the legal representatives of the 
parties is a private contract, is binding upon the parties, and can be 
enforced in courts (though there might be reasons why the court might 
declare the contract void, but you'd have to go to court to see what 
they think of it).

Personally, not being a lawyer, I perceived the MoU as a binding 
contract for those who sign it, ICANN included. If ICANN ever tried to 
escape its obligations... I would consider sueing it :-)
