"ICANN runs IANA" the same way that "ISOC runs IETF"

Once you understand that, you understand why IP is never really on ICANN agenda.

I fear you're right, which just shows how totally corrupt and venal ICANN 

ICANN runs IANA, which is the ultimate allocator of IP space. If they were 
doing their job, which they somewhat did when Vint was chair, they would 
be pushing IPv6 implementation to limit the instability due to kludges as 
people overload their limited IPv4 space.
