I always have a problem with the expectations of people who me tell me what I surely can't expect.

True, there is no way to tell governments what they can and can't do in any circumstance, let alone routing.

But certainly I think ICANN can describe what sorts of behavior is and is not appropriate and certainly I think that allocation policy can look at taking such behaviors into account. 

I am not sure what else I expect ICANN could do, but now that you mention it, it certainly seems worth investigating.
