Given that that US has controlled access to the root since the day the 
Internet started, they have always allowed countries such as Cuba, North 
Korea, and Iran to updated their TLD entries as desired, and the US has 
made it quite clear they're not giving up control of the root any time in 
the forseeable future, I'm having trouble imagining what a relevant 
example would be.

ICANN's screwing around to get ccTLDs to sign MOUs with ICANN was just a 
side show, and as Eric noted, it's not going to happen again.
